Community Outreach Programs

Because homelessness can be one paycheck loss or other circumstance away for some area families, City Mission strives to bring hope to anyone experiencing hardship in our region. We extend our Meals and Medical Services to community members.  City Mission does go beyond these services through our Samaritan Care Food Pantry Center and the WeCare Street Outreach Program to extend a helping hand to those in need.
