When a person hears "homeless," what immediately comes to mind? Drug abuser? Poverty-stricken? Mentally ill? Dirty bridge dweller? The definition of homeless is simply "a person without a home." By this definition Jesus was homeless.
You see, it all started when Jesus left his HOME in Heaven to fulfill God’s plan of redemption. Jesus had glory and riches, but He chose to be poor for us. II Corinthians 8:9 His obedience in leaving His Heavenly home and Father was for one reason only, to seek and to save the lost. Galatians 4:4-5, I Timothy 1:15, Romans 5:6, John 3:16.
Reflecting back on 2017, we are humbled to know that God has used the Mission to administer to and provide services for both our homeless residents and community guests in need. Your monetary donations and hours of service have affected hundreds of men, women, and children in Hancock County. This past year alone, City Mission has housed and provided meals for approximately 425 residents. Additionally, we have served about the same number of community guests who regularly rely on the food services that are available to the public.
