Description: Mission
To house the homeless, provide services for those in need in our community.


Emergency shelter
Emergency Shelter is available 24/7 for Men, Women, and Children. The Mission currently has 23 beds for Men, and 26 beds for Women and Children. Call-ahead for bed availability suggested. For anyone being released from Jail, Hospital or Rehab this is a requirement, with a documented referral. We do not hold a license to house Parolees, nor do we accept registered Sex offenders into the Mission program. Male or Female.


Emergency food is available to those in need three days per week Monday, Wednesday and Friday's at 1:00, other times when fresh produce is available. The Mission networks with other local food sources and feeding programs using Charity Tracker software to avoid duplicating services. Mississippi County residents only – Documentation is required.


Clothing is available to the public Tuesday, Thursday  and Saturday's from 9:00 to 3:00. Monday, Wednesday and Friday's 9:00- 12:30. No residential restrictions apply. Picture ID required.


Donated furniture, appliances, housewares, bedding and other soft furnishings are given to those from the shelter who are entering their own homes, and house-fire victims entering their new homes. We take referrals from other service agencies for families in need who are not experiencing homelessness.


We offer LIMITED Gas assistance for  STRANDED motorists, and LIMITED Gas assistance for out-of-town Dr. appointments for people who do not receive Medicaid and thus who cannot ride the Medicaid Van. Appointment verification required. Mississippi County residents only.


Financial assistance for prescription medicines is available on a LIMITED scale, special circumstances and Co-Pays only. Mission residents who are not insured are Referred to the Great River Free Charitable Clinic.


All who stay at the Mission are required to work and be productive. Whether it be thru employment in the community, shelter chores, working in the kitchen, working in the office, or working in the warehouses and through the day labor program to Pay-it- Forward – acquiring and honing job skills is essential in preparing for re-entering the Housed Community. Retail experience, organizational skills, and building stamina needed for an all day job are but a few of the things that can be gained by this work experience.

We help with emergency food and we work with the Blytheville-Gosnell Area Food Pantry
