Compassion Party on the Road (CPR) began as a risky and spontaneous adventure led by homeless members of Jacob’s Well and their friends who wanted to help our neighbors on the streets. Today, CPR has become full-fledged, organized chaos where people come from all over the city to join in with the compassion parties our faithful team members organize each Wednesday night to feed 80-100 people through 3-4 different teams who meet at two locations:
Downtown CPR: To go out with our outreach teams in the downtown area, arrive in the parking lot of the Smith Center at 602 Looney Ave. (off Danny Thomas, North of St. Jude) ready to depart at 6:00 p.m.
Jackson/Summer CPR: To go out with our outreach teams in the Summer Ave. / Jackson Ave. area, arrive in the parking lot of Walgreen’s on the corner of Highland and Summer Ave. ready to depart by 6:00 p.m.
Why: We do this as an act of reciprocation. We have been shown mercy, so we offer mercy. And we are blessed to be a blessing.
We would love for you to join in the excitement any Wednesday evening. We’ve found that it is a great hands-on serving activity for kids as well. Because of long-term relationships & credibility with our homeless neighbors, we have never had any incidents occur during CPR.
