The Mission provides safe, comfortable lodging and showers for individuals who find themselves without shelter and needing a place to rest and get out of the elements. These guests might be transients passing through the area, some are people struggling as they work to get back on their feet and a few others are individuals that choose to join our discipleship program and become accountable in several areas of their life.

At our Men’s Facility we have space for 70 men, and in our Women & Children’s Facility we can accommodate 48 women & children.
