SOUTH STREET MINISTRIES
South Street Ministries is a group of individuals who are committed to living, serving, and loving on the Summit Lake Community through a variety of programs including (but not limited to) urban gardening, bike shop, The Front Porch cafe, church services, summer camp, after school tutoring, and open gym. Their mission is “unlikely partners taking shared risks to renew our community for Christ’s sake.” The Front Porch Cafe is a great way to support South Street and the Summit Lake/South Akron Community. The Front Porch is used as a meeting place for the community as well as a job training center for those coming from reentry programs. They have excellent food and welcome anyone who wants to eat breakfast or lunch (Monday-Friday 7:00am-3:00pm).SOUTH STREET WEBSITE
