The Windmill Society

You decide what’s possible for Philadelphia


Invest in a Philadelphia where transformation is possible by creating solutions for people experiencing deep poverty and homelessness. At Broad Street Ministry transformation becomes possible through mail, meals, and other stabilizing services. By joining The Windmill Society we recognize your generosity as a provider of radical hospitality to vulnerable and resilient Philadelphians.

Why The Windmill Society?

Hanging from the vaulted ceiling of our sanctuary dining room, the metal windmills, from a past production of Don Quixote at BSM, serve as a vivid reminder of the imposing giants our guests face daily.

At Broad Street Ministry, we believe in battling the giants of poverty and exclusion through the transformative power of radical hospitality. And you, through your Windmill Society support, join us in this critical—and winnable—fight.
