"Bread & Roses is a hub of community, offering opportunities for people to gather around common passions. As a community hub, Bread & Roses bridges the class divide by bringing people of differing class backgrounds together to discover what they have in common, as well as the unique value in one another. By bringing the community together, in all its diversity, Bread & Roses destroys the myths, fears, stereotypes, and social barriers that prevent the community from effectively addressing issues of poverty and homelessness."

EGYHOP street outreach workers are unpaid volunteers who provide emergency intervention services, needed and requested items (including, but not limited to: socks, blankets, sleeping bags, jackets, tents, wound-care/medicine/wellness supplies, coffee & food), and a friendly and familiar face. Outreach happens on the streets of Olympia 7 nights a week, 365 days a year, during hours when the street population cannot access traditional services.
