Mission Overview


Camp JOY

Imagine being a child and you’ve never been fishing, swimming, roasted marshmallows around a campfire or done any of the fun things at summer camp.

For many children in need in our community, summer camp is just a dream. But you can change that by sponsoring a camper. There is no fee for children to attend Camp JOY; instead, their camping experience is provided by generous donors at the rate of $10 a day or $50 per child per week.

Thank you for sponsoring a child, for putting a smile on their face, and for changing a life!


Spring flowers are here

Our most favorite time of year is here. Your yard and flower pots are calling and we’ve got some beauties for you, some old favorites like begonias and geraniums and some new varieties that you’re sure to fall in love with like trailing torenia.

For months the men in our recovery program have nurtured thousands of seedlings and the results are in full bloom. We also have a good selection of herbs and vegetables.

All sales go directly toward support of Mission programs.

Eight Ways to Truly Help the Homeless

Too often, well intended gifts are converted to drugs or alcohol—even when the “hard luck” stories they tell are true.

Shelter Needs

The men and women who come through the Mission doors usually have nothing more than the clothes on their back. A simple way to help us help those in our shelters is to donate needed items.
