Abel, from The Scott Mission

For eight decades, Scott Mission has offered safe shelter to men who had no choice but to sleep on our city streets. It’s an incredible gift to receive a bed, shower, hot meal, clothes, and compassion when you have nowhere else to turn.

In response to the incredible need wrought by the lingering pandemic, Scott Mission expanded shelter services to be available 24/7. Having a place to turn in a time of crisis is a great blessing to people who are suffering . . . like Abel.*

Scott Mission was a beacon of hope for him during a season when hunger and homelessness had driven him to despair.

“They gave me shelter and helped me and others get on our feet. The shelter and Bible study were very helpful,” he says.

Hundreds of people turn to the Mission each day for a meal, safe shelter, warm clothes, and other basic necessities. Each one is deeply thankful for friends and donors who care. As Abel says, “God bless Scott Mission’s donors. We pray and thank God for them.”

Please share another gift today so Scott Mission can continue to provide meals, clothing, spiritual healing, counseling, and more for people who are hungry, hurting, homeless, and without hope.
