Show Some Love 2019

A Festive Dinner and More for Our Homeless Guests

For those experiencing homelessness, Christmas can be a painful reminder of separation from family separation from family, poverty and failure. That is why we host Show Some Love, a weekend intended to boost the emotional health of hungry and hurting neighbors and to encourage men to enter one of the Mission’s training programs. If we show that we care about them, we believe they will learn to care about themselves.

Here’s how you can help:
