PEOPLE'S CITY MISSION

People’s City Mission was founded in 1907 to help struggling folks get back on their feet. For over one hundred years, we have assisted more than one million men, women, and children suffering from homelessness and poverty – people struggling with chemical addictions, fleeing domestic abuse, mental illness, divorce, abandonment, unemployment, and other life crises.

ONLY251 SHUTTLE

Transportation has been an important need for the homeless for a long time. Thanks to our Only251 campaign and the many donors participating in it, our Only251 shuttle is helping to meet this important need. In addition, a number of businesses in the city are joining in to hand out sack lunches and water to people in the streets throughout the day.

You never know what a lunch, a bottle of water, or a little conversation can do for someone’s day.
