Sr. Bonnie Steinlage, SFP
Sr. Bonnie Steinlage, SFP is a Franciscan Sister of the Poor. She has ministered as a nurse and hospital chaplain. One Ash Wednesday, words from the gospel moved her deeply. “When you pray, wash your face and comb your hair…” She felt called to provide those services for those who have no access to them. She enrolled in cosmetology school and founded Franciscan Hair-cuts from the Heart. In the past 25 years she has enabled over 50,000 poor and people experiencing homelessness to look good and feel good about themselves again – one person at a time.

Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church is a vibrant faith community organized in 1879. (from a recent Facebook post) “The people of Hyde Park Community first made their commitment public in 1927 that this faith community is open to ALL. This was a radical statement at the time, and 92 years later, it is a radical statement in the United Methodist Church. We continue to be committed to following Jesus by welcoming and including ALL at Hyde Park Community.” Hyde Park Community UMC has been a long-time supporter of the Center’s mission both financially and through various volunteer efforts on a monthly basis. The congregation is the Center’s Volunteer of the Year.
