Kankakee, IL - 60901
How many men stay at your shelter?
- We normally have between 4 to 25 people for dinner at any given time.
Do you receive any government funding?
- We do not receive any government funding so we can remain free to proclaim the gospel. We rely on donations from friends and supporters of the ministry to fund our operation.
How many people have you seen saved through this ministry?
- Many find their lives changed and go on to lead productive lives, find new jobs or return to their families.
Are you able to find jobs for the men?
- We are not a job placement agency, but we do work to help people to become self-reliant and responsible. We do occasionally have job opportunities come to us for people looking for small jobs or part time work. We also refer people to temp agencies and encourage them to look for work every day.
Are there laundry facilities available for the men?
- Yes, there is a laundry schedule available.
- We provide Dinner Monday thru Friday at 5"00 pm. On weekends we go to the streets with our mobile soup Kitchen. These meals are available to men, women, and children.
