The Mission

The Mission of SMDP Outreach

The mission of St Martin de Porres Outreach is to serve with an open heart for humanity by providing food, clothing and educational opportunities, enabling families to ultimately self-sustain.

Our Vision

Every person has access to the tools to achieve their fullest potential.


To recognize the suffering of others and then take action to help. Our hearts beat in harmony with the collective pulse of our community, and we share the mission of an unwavering belief in the inherent worth and potential of each individual.


All of our actions according to the mission will be carried on with complete integrity. Adherence to this value has enabled the mission of SMDP to thrive, empowering us to create meaningful relationships with our community.


Everyone who comes through our doors will be treated with respect consistent with the message of Jesus, and we will design our programs to improve the dignity and potential of each person. We know that one person respecting another can create a ripple effect that reaches far beyond our imagination. Witness the mission in action on Facebook.

I miss going to your place for dinner. Thanks you so much for all the help you have given me at times. It was always nice to know that I had a place to go if I was in need. Tell everyone I said hello.

I have been volunteering with the after school & English program for a few months. It is really fulfilling to build a relationship with the kids and see them so willing to learn.

St Martin de Porres is a great example of how someone can share their blessings easily and have a direct impact in the lives of those in need. There is no bureaucracy or overhead; just wonderful caring volunteers helping humans in need!

Without SMDP we would be in “big time trouble”. Here we are able to get food, some clothing items and, very importantly, feel welcome. In our opinion, the volunteers are the people who make this place what it is, treating us with respect and smiles.
