We are committed to helping people who are experiencing homelessness and addiction in our city change their lives. Thanks to the support of friends like you, we meet their needs through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, and community outreach.

Emergency Services

Thousands in our city wonder where they will spend the night, where their next meal will come from and if they will make it one more day alone on the streets. The first step in restoring their lives is meeting them at their points of need with emergency services that can take them to the next step in recovery and renewal.

Emergency Services

For people experiencing homelessness and poverty, basic needs like food, shelter, water, clean restrooms, showers, and laundry services can be difficult to access. And that instability can create a seemingly endless cycle of brokenness and depression, leading some people to abuse drugs and alcohol as an escape.

We provide these services in order to build trust and develop relationships with the people we serve, encouraging them to consider long-term solutions.

Next Step Services

Some people don’t need a long-term program to become self-sufficient. Instead, a temporary bed, meals and some basic assistance and education is enough to jump-start their journey toward a new life. For these people, the Mission offers a selection of services we call Next Step, which includes:

How We Help 4
  • A consistent bed they can count on
  • Access to basic life-skills classes
  • Bible studies (also open to regular guests)
  • Accountability to remain drug and alcohol free
  • Assistance with various legal needs
  • Assistance accessing benefits when available
  • Other basic case management assistance

Rehabilitation

The stress of living in poverty or struggling on the streets often leads people to abusing drugs and alcohol as an escape — creating a cycle of brokenness. Our New Life Program equips men to overcome these challenges and develop a renewed sense of hope.

New Life Program

Broken relationships, job loss, lack of education, and drug and alcohol addiction are common obstacles our homeless neighbors face every day. Over time, these struggles can become their new normal, until all they can see in themselves is brokenness, hardship and failure, leading them to believe they will never be able to make changes. In the New Life Program, we equip men to overcome these challenges and develop a renewed sense of hope and identity.

New Life Program services include:

  • Case management
  • Counseling
  • Spiritual development
  • Work readiness
  • Life-skills education
  • Accountability
  • Financial management training
  • Cultivating healthy relationships
  • Housing readiness

The New Life Program isn’t just a 30-day detox program. It’s a one-year,  immersive, foundation-building, life-changing program. While in the program, some participants earn their GEDs and go on to higher education. Some qualifying participants even receive a vehicle when they graduate.

The New Life Program is for men only. If you are a woman, single mother or family seeking help, contact us for a program to meet your needs.

Transitional Programs

Our transitional programs help people who are homeless despite having a job and steady income transition into a sustainable, self-sufficient life.

Transitional Programs

Our transitional programs help people who are homeless despite having a job and steady income transition into a sustainable, self-sufficient life. From an on-site living program to mentoring and assistance with the first month’s rent and deposit on a long-term housing solution, our transitional programs meet the unique needs of working families, the elderly and those with disabilities.

Our STAR Transitional Program gives homeless families a safe place to live while they transition out of their circumstances. Our largest facility, The Crossing, enables parents with children live in an encouraging community until they are back on their feet.

Services include:

  • Case management
  • Life-skills training
  • Financial management training
  • Cultivating healthy community relationships
  • Youth development programs

The STAR Program uses program fees to encourage personal and financial responsibility. At least one STAR Program adult must have a minimum income of $800/month for individuals and $1,000/month for families.

The Mission’s Family Rescue Ministry program provides families and seniors in need with assistance with their first month’s rent and deposit toward a long-term housing solution as well as mentors from the community who help them develop important life skills in budgeting, family needs, and more.

Families who come to the United States from another country as refugees have limited relational and material support. Through the Mission’s Family Refugee Services, these families are partnered with a mentor team who will work with them to help with basic needs, community orientation, employment skills, financial skills (bilingual assistance if necessary), and social and emotional support.

Community Outreach

Our community outreach programs help better the lives of vulnerable neighbors in low-income households while strengthening our whole community. We walk alongside them as Jesus would to provide groceries, clothing, furniture, referrals to social services and more.

Our Community Outreach services includes:

  • Food
  • Clothing
  • Furniture
  • Household Items
  • Hygiene products
