Esteban came to City Gospel Mission’s homeless shelter to break the bond of addiction. His healing journey started with a simple meal. “Now that you have a meal on the table, it’s like, ‘Thank you God,’ because I went from digging in the trash to sitting down with my brothers around the table.” While staying at the shelter, Esteban was able to get a car. Now, the next step is to get a job. He’s working with case managers to do that. Then, an apartment. He has a simple message for all the people who give to the Mission: “Without you, your support and your help, we wouldn’t be anything. We wouldn’t be what we are right now.”


Shane came to our shelter after losing everything in a house fire. Now, he’s rebuilding his life. “Food, shelter, clean facility, nice bed every night. I can’t think of a better place I could have stumbled upon. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. You’ve helped me and countless people in ways that bring tears to my eyes.“


Matt found hope again after losing a job which led to losing his housing. “City Gospel Mission has, in a matter of 30 days, has turned my life around. They’re not just there to get you through the night. They’re there to change your life and sustain you going forward.”


“Once I got to City Gospel Mission, it actually helped me turn my life around. Being able to give back to the Mission… It kind of warms your heart if you can do anything, a donation, or donate your time. It helps bless everyone else, including yourself.”
