Founded in 1968 by St. Mark’s and others in the local religious community to meet the unmet emergency needs of the local poor residents of the Beaumont community. When no one could help they were told they had to go to “some other place”…thus the name.
Some Other Place is an ecumenical mission in urban ministry. A place where people of all faiths come together to provide services of all types to people who find themselves in emergency situations.
St. Mark’s volunteers cook and serve a meal to between 200 to 250 people every Thursday at Some Other Place. Cooks begin preparing the food at 8:00 am. Those who serve arrive at 11:00 am. The food service begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 12:30 p.m.. Most of the people who eat at Some Other Place depend on this food for their main – if not only – meal of the day.
