Chaplaincy

We support and pastor people who are experiencing the man-made crisis and disaster of poverty—while also working toward a world where there is no more poverty.

What is Chaplaincy?

Most people think about fire departments or emergency rooms when they think of chaplains, because chaplaincy is about supporting and pastoring people in crisis and disaster situations. At Chaplains on the Harbor, we support and pastor people who are experiencing the man-made crisis and disaster of poverty—while also working toward a world where there is no more poverty.

Our chaplaincy sometimes looks like praying with people (in whatever faith or spiritual path they follow). Other times it looks like supporting people as they navigate the criminal justice system, sharing meals together, or visiting people in jail and in encampments. We do not proselytize. We are simply present, and honored to bear witness to the courage and endurance with which people face this world.
