Compassionate Care, taking care of basic needs, is often the first step to renewal. This branch of City Mission's 3 pronged Program approach includes meals, shelter, and medical care. Many of the individuals that come into our program learn about the City Mission through a visit to the kitchen for a meal or another community outreach programs like our Samaritan Care Program.

City Mission has four main shelters for longer term recovery: Men’s, Women’s, Women with Children, and the Crabtree-Kovacicek Veteran’s House - providing a combined shelter for 160 individuals at any given time. People interested in long-term shelter go through our gateway dorm, complete an assessment and if eligible are placed in the program. During cold weather special accommodations are made in our Emergency Shelter, so that every individual has a warm bed and a hot meal.
