End the Year Giving Back
When Andre first came to the Mission he and his family were living in their car. Andre had worked for the same company for years and then the company went under. He lost everything, including his hope. “It’s not easy riding around for hours until your kids fall asleep, trying to hide that we were homeless, or explaining to your kids why Mom is always crying”.
Thanks to the generosity of people like you, the Mission was able to place Andre and his family in transitional housing where they were safe and had a chance to start over. Through the many services at the Mission, Andre not only got a better job than the one he lost but he worked on his credit and now they qualify for a home of their own.
Please make your year-end gift so more families like Andre’s can find hope and long-term stability.
Your gift of $100 or more can help continue to provide transitional homes and support services to families who just need a safe place to start over and build a better life for themselves and their children.

“Jobs are hard to find right now.” Robert is one of the hundreds of people in our community struggling to get by with no income.
Robert came to us when he had no lights, no water and no heat. When you don’t have a job, you can’t pay your bills. Robert finally came to us for help when the nights got cold and he had no heat for his son. (more…)
Mark had a wife, young daughter, a home and good-paying job with a large pest control company. Things turned when his wife left him and his daughter. Soon after he lost his job and sunk into a depression. The first time Mark came to The Mission was through the Christmas Angels Program. He did not know where to go, not having received any type of services before, and wanted to provide his young daughter with some Christmas presents.
Since then Mark visits the Mission on an as-needed basis. He has a small farm that he maintains and earns a small income. He is also the only caregiver for his daughter given that they have no family in the area. Mark limits his visits to the Mission only when he is in real need of food or clothing. Mark says, “I am so appreciative that I can get school clothes for my daughter, shoes for both of us, and food.”
He’s thankful the Mission can help his daughter get the nutrition she needs with well-balanced meals, including chicken or meat, bread and vegetables.
“Without the Christian Mission, I don’t know what my son and I would have done. You gave me hope. You have done so much to help me, I cannot mistake the fact that God’s love dwells deep within your heart.” – Caroline
