Faithful Fools Street Ministry

Faithful Fools Street Ministry is located in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. Faithful Fools was founded by UU Rev. Dr. Kay Jorgensen and Sr. Carmen Barsody, OSF. The Fools encourage and engage people from all walks of life in questioning assumptions and shattering myths about homelessness, poverty and the boundaries of separation we all protect. We provide resources, internships, practicum, workshops and artistic and cultural events for ministers, parishioners, seminarians and anyone interested in our vital justice-making community as it challenges both oppression and privilege. We seek to bear witness on the streets and in daily accompaniment and advocacy. Our community now extends from the barrios of Managua, Nicaragua to many cities in the U.S. and Vancouver, Canada.
