DRIVES & EVENTS

You can help impact lives today! Team up with your friends, workplace, church or school, and share in the joy of giving to those in need!

Get-Involved Opportunities

HOST A DRIVE: A drive makes a big impact. And it’s a great way to build community through the shared joy of giving with your friends, workplace or church. Last year PCM helped nearly 30,000 of our hungry and homeless neighbors — because of donations from people like you!

HOST A FUNDRAISING EVENT: Inspire your group, workplace or church to be creative and give back by hosting your own fundraiser for PCM. We’ve seen everything from jean days and fun runs to partial sale donations and soup cook-offs.

To start a conversation about how your group can make an impact in the community through a drive or event, please fill out the form below, or contact Michele Orth directly at 402-817-0818 or morth@pcmlincoln.org.

Emergency Shelter

Emergency Shelter policies vary based on seasonal needs, please contact the ‘HIS Center’ staff with any questions: 402.475.1303

Every guest of the ‘HIS Center’ is provided with a bed (or cot), three meals a day, shower facilities, personal hygiene items and laundry facilities.

Program Tracks

For eligible guests from Nebraska, we offer two program options: Short Term Stay (30 days) and ‘The Path’ (90 days). Each guest participating in a program track will be assigned a PCM caseworker to help create individual goals and milestones. Community resource referrals and employment assistance are also provided to help each guest move towards independent living.

Stats:

  • 66% of homeless single adults suffer from alcohol, drug abuse or mental illness
  • 25% of the homeless population is employed
  • 996 number of men provided for at the men’s’ shelter in 2016

Day Services

‘HIS Center’ guests and former guests have access to the Agape Café before and after meals. The Agape Café provides shower facilities, laundry facilities, and mail services year-round. During inclement weather, the Agape Café is open during the day to those needing a place of refuge.
One-on-one counseling, Bible studies, and Sunday church services are also available to all guests.

Former Men's Shelter Guest

It’s been two years since I left the Men’s Shelter. I’m now sober, employed and engaged to a wonderful woman. When I left the shelter, Earl gave me a coat that was one of the things that helped me get on my feet. I keep that coat to remind me of how far I’ve come and of the kindness and generosity that was extended to me during my time at the Mission. Thank you! -Former Men’s Shelter Guest

Michele Orth

Community Relations Director

Michele is a Nebraska girl! Enough said.

“In all reality, I am so grateful to have been raised in the Midwest. I have traveled to 30 countries (so far!), mostly on mission work, and now I get to work and serve at an actual MISSION, doing what I love, in a city that I love.

I connect the community to the need, while dreaming organization! 6 years ago, it was the end of the workday and I was leaving. A little girl looked me straight in the eyes and innocently asked, ‘Are you going home?’ I still get chills at the nuance of that question. Oh the daily blessings that we all take for granted.”

Michele loves to read, pray, cook and eat all types of foods (except Italian), take photo vacations, and all things outdoors, especially water. Alaska is her ‘final frontier’ as she has been to the other 49 States. Connect Church at PCM is also her heart. She is honored to be on the worship and leadership teams. She is a widow, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin and friend.
