What is the mission of My Brother’s Keeper?
The Mission of My Brother’s Keeper, is to provide a safe haven between the people of Northeast Neighborhoods of Hartford – those who have and those who have not – by providing food obtained by donations and served by members of the Citadel and volunteers. In this manner, the true spirit of communion, which of sharing God’s gifts with God’s people, can be carried out in caring and non-judgmental atmosphere.
Thank you so much for your service! Your smile and your caring attitude are the most important aspect of our success, and will be something that our guests will remember throughout the day after joining us!
