Our Mission: Friends of the Carpenter is a non-profit, faith-based day facility that provides safety, structure and purpose for vulnerable members of our community.

Around the Table

Working Together Around the Table

We are open 9am to 4pm Monday through Friday, for any and all who wish to spend time at our Friendship Center.  Those who come through our doors are greeted with warm hospitality, offered coffee and perhaps a snack, and then invited to sit around a table with others and help with a woodworking or other various projects.

The woodworking provides a tangible activity, a way to contribute to the community in a real and meaningful way.  The wood products do provide some income for the ministry, but the sense of purpose and the relationships formed around that table are far more important.

Our Vision: People of all circumstances are accepted, honored and appreciated in our community, and are empowered to live life with dignity, hope and love.
