Welcome Home(less): A man not just living out his calling, but living IN it

Alan Graham is the president, CEO, and a founding member of Mobile Loaves & Fishes, a social outreach ministry committed to providing permanent, sustainable solutions for the chronically homeless, with compassion, love, and dignity. Since 1996, Alan and teams of over 18,000 volunteers have delivered over 5 million meals with a side of hope to the homeless and working poor on the streets of Austin and have empowered other cities across the U.S. to do the same. Today, MLF is the largest prepared feeding program to the homeless and working poor in Austin. Since 2005, Mobile Loaves & Fishes has also been providing housing to the homeless through its Community First! program. Many of MLF’s volunteers describe their experiences as life-changing. Perhaps the program has changed no one more than Alan Graham himself.

We met Alan recently onsite at Community First! to discuss his ministry and his new book “Welcome Homeless.” The conversation was a surreal moment in time, for Alan's passion and authenticity go above and beyond to serve His kingdom. We are thankful for the opportunity to interview someone who shines their inner light so brightly.
