The Open Table :: Courtney from Brian Simmermacher on Vimeo.

The Open Table model has launched in 20 states and 120+ communities around the country.  The model creates “Tables” that consist of 6 to 12 volunteers who make a one-year service commitment.  The team serves as life specialists, encouragers, and advocates for the individual being served (referred to as a “Brother” or “Sister”).  Table members draw on their life experiences, education, skills, and networks in their church or community to support the Brother or Sister’s plan. For more information, please visit
