We serve hot, nutritious meals -- up to 700 a day, 365 days a year, free of charge.

Up to 120 men have short-term shelter with us each night.  Clothing and showers are available to overnight guests.

We provide safe, secure, 24-hour restrooms for men, women, and children.  This restores dignity and allows us to reach people we may not otherwise meet.

Mail Service: 
We provide a mailing address for hundreds of homeless individuals—a vital service for anyone who needs an address for job applications, family correspondence and legal issues.

We refer our guests to treatment programs, medical providers, employment programs and transitional housing facilities to help get their needs met.

The heart of our ministry occurs in our 12-18 month recovery programs for men, women and their children.  Counseling, education, job and life skills and spiritual renewal restore hurting people to a joyful, independent life.
