Trinity at Twenty! Barbara Jordan Celebration 2019

We are celebrating our 20th anniversary this year! It’s Trinity at Twenty!! So this year’s celebration, in memory of our generous benefactor, Barbara Jordan, will be extra special as we seek support for our programs that serve men and women experiencing homelessness. We offer compassionate care every day to help meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the people who may be invisible to others but whom we happily welcome through our doors.
