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.

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.

Ten Important Words

Some good news for a cold Wednesday. We just this overheard in a hallway at the Mission: "We were approved for an apartment and move in tomorrow." It is a short sentence, but it's one full of hope and encouragement. You can help us provide hope and encouragement to...
