I was told that I could recover after my surgery there, so I took a bus here to get the surgery done. When I got here I was surprised to find out that they had lied to me on the phone. I will be on a pain pump for five days and my insurance won't cover a hospital stay for recovery that long. I postponed the surgery for now and am at home trying to figure out what to do as I live alone, and really need to get back to work. Also the staff is rude and disrespectful, seemingly only there for themselves. Hurts me to see what really goes on at the Gospel Mission. I now would never donate to that organization.
Great beacon of the community. They are helping those who need it most
Review from Guidestar
only if you seen the true side to all the staff. how the place is run is like your in a jail cell. There's only a few staff who really care about the clients that say there.
I had the opportunity to meet with the staff at the Kalamazoo Gosspel Mission and they were great! They genuine compassion and commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ was evident, They are profession in every respect. They are the face of Christ with a message for the lost in this day and age.
Review from Guidestar
I have been involved with the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission for 5 years and what a blessing it has been to me. KGM touches people and let's them know that they are cared about and loved. But most of all KGM teaches the power of our LORD and SAVIOR, Jesus Christ.
I have seen clients at KGM who had hit rock bottom from addiction to alcohol and drugs but the programs offered at KGM has put them back on the right track to get their lives together. KGM is not just a homeless shelter, it is a place where one can go and get the support that they need and regain the respect that they deserve. The KGM is a GOD send for those in need, not only for shelter and food but for support from others who have experienced the same situation they may be going thru. I do love KGM for what they represent in the Kalamazoo Community and for what they do for those in need and letting them know that GOD forgives all sins and all things are possible if you believe.
The Kalamazoo Gospel Mission is a great pillar of our community. Not only is it an outreach for the those in need of shelter, food and clothing it is a place where everyone can receive the love of God. As a mentor to some of their clientele I have always had a blessed experience working with their staff. As a member of this community I have been able to bring my family to their family events and know that my children age 7 & 11 will have a great time fellow shipping with the staff and clients.
KGM is not just a food kitchen, not just a shelter, not just a place to have your life changed, not just a a safe haven for your children, not just a place to come into a real and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ, it is a force in the community. It is an honest, reliable, stable, caring and trustworthy integral part of this community we call Kalamazoo.
Our firm provides free legal services to Kalamazoo Gospel Mission patrons. Through those sessions, we have witnessed what KGM brings to all those who enter their doors. With these poor economic times and with so many more now homeless, the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission is extraordinary in what they provide from food and shelter to support, strength, and hope. Because the need is greater now than ever before, donations and volunteers are desparately needed. If you have time, a spare coat or blanket or a few dollars, please consider supporting the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission.
I volunteer to teach Financial Literacy Classes to the clients at KGM and from what I see the staff do there is amazing. I have seen clients who were at rock bottom come back to the top and reclaim their lives thru the help of the staff at KGM and God. It is just so overwhelming to see the miracles that happen at KGM. Kalamazoo is so blessed to have people who care about people at KGM.
The staff and volunteers at the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission are people who truly have a heart for the poor and hurting community in the Greater Kalamazoo area. The staff go above and beyond to serve each client and meet the individuals physical and spiritual needs. I have found this to be true with every person I have interacted with at the Mission. The great work that the mission does in the name of Christ results in changed lives.
