is to welcome independent-minded people of all ages, build a diverse Christian
community, and nurture one another to love God, neighbor and self.
No matter who you are, or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here!

One Starfish
Safe Parking Program
Provided by
Pass the Word Ministry
We have been happy to provide
safe parking spaces for
overnight parking to women who
use their vehicles as refuge.
Although the participants have
recently decided to seek parking
spaces closer to services in the
Monterey area, we remain
supportive of the program's
goals and success.  One
Starfish also  provides
wrap-around counseling and
support services toward
mainstream living. It provides
some stability while the program
participants are lifted into
housing, health care and jobs.
ONGOING NEEDS:
WARM CLOTHING,
PARTICULARLY JACKETS,
COATS, SHOES, SOCKS,
SCARVES, GLOVES, ETC.
