The Gubbio Project
The Gubbio Project is stationed at St. Boniface Church in the Tenderloin. Weekdays 6am-3pm, The Gubbio Project offers a place for the homeless to rest and eat within the walls of the church. No one is ever turned away, and all are treated with dignity. The Gubbio Project also provides blankets, socks, hygiene kits, referrals to outside services and resources, interfaith chaplain services, foot care (with a Registered Nurse Foot Care Specialist), and massage services.
For my Audio Production class final at USF, I decided to visit The Gubbio Project and get to know some individuals who frequented the shelter. There, I met and interviewed Irene and Calvin. Listen to and watch my piece centered around humanizing the homeless. My experiences at The Gubbio Project inspire me to live a life of love and gratitude because even the homeless do exactly that, despite their unique struggles.
