Why Work Here?

Amazing mission. Outstanding coworkers. Making a difference — every day.

Preble Street is about people. Passionate and generous people who say with our founder, Joe Kreisler, “I am a human being. Part of my job, part of being alive, is making sure that other people are too.” People who believe that families living in poverty should not have to go hungry, that no one should have to be on the street when they are tired or sick or cold, that youth who have no home should not have to live in fear and danger. People who see dignity, worth, and potential in community members experiencing homelessness. And most of all, the courageous people who come to Preble Street seeking help to overcome unimaginably difficult circumstances—disabilities, abuse, unemployment, substance use, isolation, language barriers. People working together to turn hunger and homelessness into opportunity and hope through programs that operate 24/7/365 to meet the needs of 500 people each day.
