Our emergency services are available at no charge to all in need. We provide warm meals served three times a day, safe overnight shelter, laundry services, hygiene/shower services, temporary baggage storage, and the opportunity to join our recovery program.
All overnight guests of the Mission are allowed to stay on our campus each day of the month. We do not purge individuals from our campus after breakfast. We desire for people to take steps to clean up their life by joining our Biblically-based recovery program.
