Ways to help

New Life Training Service (Warehouse)

If you have a trade such as electronics, furniture repair, appliance repair, etc., we could use your expertise to repair items while training a client in the basics. This is perfect for retirees and the self-employed who want to help others! We also have special projects for youth, college and church groups!

Meals for Homeless Men and Women

A great way to serve! Every day we serve up to 1,200 meals to those on our streets. Church groups, youth groups and families come every morning and night to serve hot dinners to homeless men and women at the Mission. Church groups are invited to share their faith with the men and women at the Mission. This is a special time to minister to the hurting and a great way for your church or group to get involved.

We can always use guest speakers and musical/drama performances for the program clients and guests. Pastors, lay leaders and others in ministry are encouraged to share their faith and passion during our morning chapel services. Youth groups and choirs are also welcome to minister to our clients. You can sign up for a regular rotation or a one-time visit. Every visit is appreciated!

We also have several thousand winter coats and supplies on hand to give away to all in need. We have limited opportunities for this event, but we need servers and general-use volunteers.
