Jesus promised us He was going to prepare a place for us in heaven. It is a wonderful thought and feeling to know that there is a place just for you. For the homeless it is often just a dream, as they move from place to place looking for a home and hope. At Open Door Mission we can provide a temporary place of shelter and security, but not without your help to provide the amenities. Many of our guests move on to apartments or houses, but can’t afford to “furnish” their new homes…without your help.
I get calls every day asking if we will take more than just clothes…YES! Through our three Outreach Centers we serve our guests, as well as thousands in the community. By providing more than just clothes, the working poor can use valuable dollars to pay bills (rent, utilities), not furnish their home. Open Door Mission does not charge for anything available in the Outreach Centers. What God has freely provided through you, our donors, we freely share with those in need. You are making difference and helping to break the cycle of homelessness. By donating items you no longer use or need you help prepare a place that will become a home. Gently used furniture, working large or small appliances, bedding, towels, dishes, silverware and even pots and pans are all needed. So clean out all those items you were saving “just in case you needed them” and help a family prepare their home. You will be blessed and so will they.
