The Midnight Mission Approach

Given the trauma most of our families have experienced, one can easily forget how critical basic life skills are to achieving successful and independent living. With help from the HomeLight Team, our families are empowered to remove obstacles through learning critical life skills. Centrally located in Los Angeles, The Midnight Mission offers services, events, and homeless shelter volunteer opportunities throughout Southern California.

Rationale For Life Skills

Transitioning the individuals and families that we serve is more than simply finding them a job. There are several life opportunities individuals in this population may have missed out on due to their circumstances. For example, homeless youth may have had little experience with more typical adult life and expectations. Additionally, veterans may require additional support and training in our homeless programs to adjust back to civilian life. Regardless of their circumstances, homeless individuals can benefit from specific life skills education and homeless services in Skid Row.

Life Skills For Homeless People

A variety of skills and sub-skills are necessary to fully empower and prepare individuals experiencing homelessness. The Midnight Mission strives to provide the following homeless programs and services to the communities we work with:

Employment Skills

  • Building a resume
  • Applying for jobs
  • Interview skills

Personal Skills

  • Money management
  • Meal planning/cooking
  • Filing taxes
  • Filing for benefits

Social Skills

Volunteer For Homeless People

The list of skills is extensive and varies based on the individual needs of the homeless individual or family. Our goal is to provide the environment, skills, and support necessary to make success possible. If you are interested in providing life skills and assistance for people experiencing homelessness, consider volunteering at one of our homeless shelters for families and individuals.

Support Our Cause & Homeless Programs

Your support will allow The Midnight Mission to provide a path to self-sufficiency to men, women, and children who have lost direction. Even the smallest donation can assist our homeless shelters for families and help them get back on their feet.
