More about Friends of the Carpenter:

Friends of the Carpenter was incorporated in Vancouver in October 1998 and began as a vision of a practical outreach of simple welcome and personal interaction between volunteers from the church and people living in poverty, according to the organization. Since the beginning, regular contact has been made with the homeless and poor people of the community through woodworking events that are today held at FOC’s Friendship Center.
