Who We Are

From Chief Executive Officer, Richard Trickel

richWelcome 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.
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, beginning with the blocks of our foundation that can be found below, and then read or watch some of our 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 the work of “reaching hearts and changing lives” in the city of Cleveland?

Richard Trickel, Chief Executive Officer
