The Midnight Mission Statement of Purpose
The Midnight Mission offers a path to self-sufficiency to men, women and children who have lost everything. Our emergency services, 12-step philosophy, job training, education and work programs offer a compassionate bridge to productive lives. We help remove obstacles to self-sufficiency and provide the accountability and structure that people who are experiencing homelessness need to rejoin their communities. Our conviction and commitment to their success define us.
To offer a bridge to self-sufficiency for homeless people through engagement, education, training and job placement.
To make available the necessities of life to homeless people: food, shelter, clothing, personal hygiene needs, and medical care.
To support the 12-step approach to recovery.
To serve homeless people with empathy and respect, without sermonizing.
To provide for the homeless as an independent social service agency.
