What We Do!

Fresh Meals

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served each day. Our kitchen staff prepares an average of 500 meals every day. Each month, more than 15-thousand meals are served, averaging nearly 200-thousand meals every year. These basic needs must be satisfied before someone can imagine a different life. God uses simple moments in the Mission dining hall to redirect entire lives.

Safe Shelter

We provide safe overnight shelter, showers, laundry service, 3-meals each day, comprehensive case management services, and access to job readiness training for more than 200 homeless men on a daily basis. The Homeless Intervention Services (HIS) staff works one-on one with each guest to determine the best strategy for complete life restoration and an eventual transition back into society.

The Learning Center is a comprehensive multimedia facility with 15 computers staffed by a fully credentialed instructor. Lack of education is a significant barrier to the success and independence of our residents and graduates. We help them by providing an on-site instructor, and teachers who volunteer their time to provide the training needed to pass their certification.

Warm Clothing

Our comprehensive donation center collects clothing, household items and other goods which then are distributed to residents at our facility. Thanks to the generosity of our clothing donors we are able to clothe men, women, children and infants.. Clothing donations are sorted by size and color and re-distributed sometimes as fast as they are received.
