THE GOSPEL MISSION
January 3, 2010

The Gospel Mission has provided shelter and meals for the homeless and near homeless of Sioux City, Iowa for the last 73 years. It was started by an old railroad worker by the name of Henry Plummer. They serve around 60,000 meals per year and provide nightly shelter for as high as 60 to 70 People. They provide these services free for anyone that is in need no matter what a person's background is. Also, they have counseling services as well as medical services. The Gospel Mission has an Outlet Store that provides clothes and furniture at an extremely low price or for free if a person is totally destitute. The Gospel Mission also has a sister work for homeless and abused women and children in a seperate building across the street from the main mission building. Thank you for your consideration of this very fine work. I would be happy to coordinate a visit for you with the administrator of this fine work.

The Great!

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

helping serve meals and organize volunteers to serve meals and do other work there.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to make more people aware of the Gospel Mission through more advertizing so that more people could help with the work that goes on there.

More feedback

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

it helps people that have no where else to turn to get their needs met.

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

friendly, efficient and helpful.

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

start 10 other volunteer organizations to help the needy.

Ways to make it better...

I spent more time there.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

having enough money to meet the need in our community.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am extremely grateful that this need is being address in our community.
