THE GOSPEL MISSION
December 11, 2009

I have been involved with the Sioux City Gospel Mission for the last 5 years.

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

Building relationships not only with staff but also individuals who use their services.

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

Always willing to help in anyway they can.

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

become self sustaining. I see the Mission starting several businesses that could give job opportunities to their clients, on the job training ie chefs school, a larger facility to house a learning center and dormitory.
