Food, Shelter, Clothing

Thanks to generous support, all of our services for people who are poor or homeless are provided free of charge.

MEALS

More than 270,000 hot meals a year, served by caring volunteers, share love with people who might have gone days without food.

Often, it’s that first meal at the Mission that gives a man or woman hope for a new life in our recovery programs.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served 365 days a year to anyone in need.
