I volunteered when I was new to the area. The experience was not the best because I was told to fill out an application which was never followed up by City Mission. They remembered to ask for money four times a year but never contacted me to help. Amazingly, I could have helped with manual labor, Computers, and even their Board but alas they could not spend the time to follow up. I am sure this was just a slip up because I still have contact with them. Most of the personnel treat everyone as a special person.

Their doors are open to folks in need! Pregnant mothers have come, had their babies and brought them home to City Mission. Fathers have put their lives back together and gained custody of their children. Marriages torn apart because of drugs and/or alcohol have been restored. Women with and without children find the stability and the resources they need to live new and healthy lives. City Mission's Samaritan Services helps so many poor and working poorwith meals and food, clothing, household items and furniture. Consider visiting and taking a tour to see it all!

Working with the homeless men, women and women with children we serve is a blessing. I learn much more from the residents we help support than I will ever teach them. They are humble and blessed by what the donors provide. When the light of Christ shines through them we know we are doing the Lord's work among His people. I am blessed!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The way the Washington City Mission is ending homelessness one life at a time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The staff are excited about how they can effect change through the love of Christ.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Staff are friendly, kind, considerate and work well as a team - supporting one another on a daily basis with prayer.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

secure its future and know that it will continue to share Christ, to shelter, to heal and to restore the homeless to independent living - without discrimination.
