From Chief Executive Officer, Richard Trickel

Welcome to The City Mission’s website.

For over a century, The City Mission has provided help and hope to Cleveland’s hurting and homeless.  Then as now, our work begins with meeting basic human needs of food, shelter, and caring.  But with the help of many faithful friends, we are able to give so much more.

As we continue to adapt to the changing needs of the community we've developed programs that can be tailored to the specific needs of each individual we meet.  We offer advanced vocational training to prepare men and women to not only find a job, but develop a career.  Our Pathways Family Outreach program is constantly finding new, effective ways to support the parents and children in Cleveland's central neighborhood.

I'm excited to see God working in the lives of the men, women, and children that come to us for help and I invite you to explore our site and see some of the powerful stories of hope for yourself.  I'm confident that if you do, you'll start to get excited too.

Everything we do is made possible by the committed support of donors and volunteers.  Would you join with us in this great work of “reaching hearts and changing lives” in the city of Cleveland?

Thank you for your interest in The City Mission.


Richard Trickel, Chief Executive Officer
