Open Table is a growing movement of faith communities seeking to re-focus from poverty maintenance to poverty transformation. The Open Table model is a catalyst for powerful collaboration between faith communities, transitional organizations, clinical psychology, government, local businesses and non-profit organizations and resources. Together, this unique collaboration builds encouraging and accountable partnerships with people in poverty so they may live into their human potential.

opentablechairsmodel-580px-300x216Open Table began its innovative program in 2005 when it developed a volunteer-led process to restore one Phoenix homeless man to wholeness.  The process was a success, and interest in the “Table” model grew until Open Table became a 501(c)(3) organization in 2007.  Open Table is a proven, effective, poverty transformation model that provides a restorative path to wholeness and self-sufficiency within the community.

Chase Oaks Church has become involved with this exciting model to make a long-term impact in the lives of individuals in our community.
