We take referrals from other service agencies for families in need who are not experiencing homelessness.

TRAVELER'S AID

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.

WORK PROGRAMS

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.
