We help the hurting, the hungry, and the homeless. We help both young and old who have nowhere to turn and are at the end of their resources. We help the troubled man who thinks he has no future. We help the prisoner whose days are as barren as his cell. We help the young mother who huddles next to her sleeping child, not knowing what comes next. We help the student and parent who dreams of a better life but doesn’t see a way to get there from where they are today.
We serve many people at The City Mission, all of whom are in great need. We strive to live out Christ’s declaration from Matthew 25:40, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
From homelessness to wholeness. Laura’s Home is far more than a homeless shelter for women, much more than a place for women to sleep safely and inside.
Mustering courage in the depths of despair. It’s hard for a man to seek help. So the men who come to The City Mission and to our Crossroads program are attempting a truly difficult task: mustering courage in the depths of despair.
A life of opportunity, purpose, and faith. A young person in need is like any other young person. They want to have fun. They need help with their homework. They need guidance, but they question authority. They don’t always make the best choices.
Christ’s love and compassion are needed, perhaps more than anywhere, in Ohio’s jails and prisons. Thousands of men and women spend each day in anger and despair, blind to how much their God loves them.
