2020 has been hard on the homeless. They have been even more isolated than usual. We want to bring them together in a safe, socially distant environment for a special Thanksgiving Day. We look forward to this special day coming up in the life of the Mission.
Patti is a women’s shelter chapel speaker and is also the administrative assistant at Concord Baptist Church. She is coordinating Concord’s support of the Mission during Thanksgiving. The church set tables up in their foyer in order for members to donate needed items.
Thank you to all our wonderful supporters who pray and give to the Mission. We are grateful to be able to partner with you in shining God’s light into the dark streets of Chattanooga.
Our new friend Nina at Hanes Sock Drive sent the Mission 3,500 masks! These will be made available to our guests and keep us stocked for a long time. #MaskUp #InThisTogether #HanesForGood
On Mission - Ministry at Night. After 10 PM the front gate is locked throughout the night. However, the manager continues to work with the Chattanooga Police as they pick people up on the street and bring them to the Mission. The Chattanooga Police have caring officers who help others.
The men’s shelter office is the central place where ministry occurs at night. Beds are assigned and supplies are given out. Also, relationships are fostered to seek to help people on a deeper level.
The Mission provided 1,595 beds and served 1,907 meals in July. Thank you for your prayers and support that made this possible!
