Avondale Samaritan Place is a joint vision of Avondale and Canterbury United Methodist Churches for outreach and mission in the Avondale Community. Our two churches formed Avondale Samaritan Place in 2013 to be a “Community Hub for Christian Service.” Housed in the Avondale UMC gymnasium building, ASP brings together people from Avondale, Canterbury, and the surrounding community to facilitate the sort of connections between neighbors (businesses included!) that improve everyone's lives.
The work of ASP focuses particularly on helping people who are on the margins. ASP offers ... food assistance to food-insecure individuals and families in the area ... social workers who help with healthcare support and utility assistance ... home repair and yard maintenance for those who are unable to do the work themselves ... after school activities ... care and support for the homeless in our neighborhood ... job creation for those whom we serve. As the community continues to grow, be revitalized, and transform, ASP’s work is essential in helping everyone in Avondale to experience the love of God in Christ and to understand that all are welcome at God’s table.
