“I have no money, I’m living in a shelter, but I am content.”

Hope for a better tomorrow

Hundreds of homeless and hurting men, women, and children with nowhere else to turn come through the doors of the Mission every day. Their stories are as different as they are. A hot meal, a place to shower, clean clothing, and a safe place to lay their heads helps to restore dignity and self-respect. Most of all they find hope for a better tomorrow.
