Our Mission and Values
Spooner House is operated by Area Congregations Together, Inc. with the mission of providing food, shelter and support services to people in need. All of our energies are devoted to helping our clients establish a self-sufficient living situation. We recognize the dignity of our clients, we give them our respect and we deliver our services without proselytizing.

At Spooner House, our mission is to serve people in need regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, age, differing abilities, or other identity or trait, and to treat all people with dignity and respect. We are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion as core values, appreciating and leveraging our differences to fulfill our mission. We seek to establish a leadership team that is reflective of the community and population we serve, to create an environment where every client, staff member, Board member, and volunteer feels valued and respected. We strive to ensure our policies and practices enable people of all races, ethnicities, and other identities to have what they need to grow and thrive. We recognize that it is our individual and collective responsibility to forge a community and society in which equality, equity, and justice are afforded to all.

Interested in cooking an evening meal 
for Spooner House residents?
Do your family, co-workers, or civic organization want to do something rewarding together?

Why not cook a meal for the residents of Spooner House!
We have several Open Meal nights for you to choose from!
By volunteering for an Open Meal night, your group would be responsible for preparing dinner for 25-35 residents. You would come up with the menu and provide the food to be served at 6:00pm.
