What is The Midnight Mission?

The Midnight Mission has been serving homeless individuals in the Skid Row area since 1914, more than 100 years ago. Over this history, we’ve learned that repairing the lives of formerly-homeless individuals is really about recreating their safety net. The safety net is a network that members of society access every day. This includes legal and medical care, as well as friends and family who we can rely on for problems large and small. Our goal is to assist homeless individuals on their quest to improve and stabilize their lives.
