Sunshine Mission Emergency Homeless Shelter

1315 Howard Street
St. Louis, MO - 63106

When a homeless man walks through Sunshine Ministries doors, they are not initially seeking a complete life change. They are coming in off the dangerous streets, escaping the summer heat or winter cold seeking two simple things shelter and food.
Sunshine Ministries provides emergency services for men in need of immediate assistance in a caring and accepting environment. Food, shelter and other basic needs are provided for each man. A simple hot meal could be their first step to a new life!
Each evening our shelter guests are given:
    A nutritious, hot dinner prepared in a meticulously clean kitchen
    A chapel service presented by volunteers that shares the Gospel message of Gods love and mercy
    A comfortable heated and air-conditioned dormitory
    Clean bathroom facilities and toiletries for a warm shower and shave before bed
    A warm, comfortable bed with fresh linens
    A nutritious breakfast and sack lunch for the day
    Safe storage for their personal possessions overnight
    Counseling and encouragement from our staff and volunteers
    Special holiday meals and celebrations
    And the safety and security that comes from knowing that our staff is on duty all night to protect them.

Addiction Recovery
For men who are ready to change their lives, Sunshine Ministries offers a 13-month Resident Program to help them recover from substance abuse and past failures, and equip them for a productive, God-honoring future.
The men arrive at the mission facility each day to participate in a rigorous program schedule including:
    A self-paced adult education program that allows the men to improve their reading, writing and math skills or prepare to take the GED test
    Behavioral, spiritual and personal counseling
    Life-skills classes that teach basic skills for independent living
    A Christian 12-Step Addiction Recovery Program
    Daily work details that train the men to have a good work ethic
    Computer literacy training
    Career Employment Services which include testing, classes and personal tutoring that equips students to find and keep a job
    Spiritual development activities such as Bible studies and church
