How Can I Help?

Pray for them.

God loves every homeless person regardless of how they may look or act. He expects us to love them, too. Pray for those you meet. You may even pray with them; but remember some of the homeless are fearful, angry and paranoid so always respond to them with your own safety needs in mind.help serve, volunteer

Teach others to care. Volunteer your time and talents.

The Mission uses a wide variety of volunteers. Some lead worship, others teach Bible studies, many serve meals, paint our facilities, drive vans and serve in many other ways. Get involved and bring your family and friends with you!
