Muncie Mission Ministries is my favorite charity. Muncie Mission Ministries works in cooperation with other agencies and services, as well as providing shelter and food for homeless and down-and-out men. They serve their community by providing lunches to all who come in need to their door. Their Attic Window stores provide low cost clothing to the community, as well as raising funds. They cooperate with the Paul Revere Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and Valentine Hollingsworth Chapter, Colonial Dames 17th Century to have annual Stand Down for Homeless and In-Need Veterans. Again, they are my favorite charity.
Muncie Mission is one of the very best ministries available in the Muncie area. They fill a growing gap in our society and provide compassion and necessary training to help these men reenter society as productive adults. The teachings of Jesus Christ are essential in getting lives back on track. Muncie Mission never falters in this. If you are looking for a nonprofit to donate to, this should be your first choice.
Muncie Mission uses its resources prudently as it works to restore and renew lives in our community. We make sure we budget donations to Muncie Mission as well as volunteer on various projects through Rotary and our church. Our office is conscientious about collecting and donating our recylcables to the Mission as well. Muncie Mission is mentioned frequently because we feel the work that their work is well done.
The Muncie Mission meets one of the most critical needs in our community---providing a safe and spiritual environment for men who are struggling to cope with everyday living. The Mission helps them stabilize their lives and coaches them on how to resume their proper and productive place within the community.
I became involved with the Mission Videoing the Walk a Mile and In My Shoes event 5 years ago. Later I videoed some on the clients for presentation to potential donors. Videoed the Walk the next year and provided finished video to show the walk to churches and civic groups. Over the years there have been many other projects which exposed me to the fine work of Muncie Mission. They are changing peoples lives by giving them hope. Muncie is very lucky to have such an organization working with homeless men and families. I will continue to help in any way I can!
The Muncie Mission is truly an amazing organization. Behind the leadership of Ray Raines, the Mission is changing and saving lives on a daily basis. I've been very fortunate to be involved with the Mission as a volunteer, donor and board member. During this time I have also had the good fortune of hearing stories from men at the Mission and how this wonderful organization has helped change their lives for the better. By gaining a trust and faith in the lord through the guidance of the Mission staff , these men are choosing a better path. I can not say enough about this organization and the positive impact it has on our community.
I am a member of a church who meets in the same community as the Muncie Mission. For years now, our church comes to the Muncie Mission one night a month. We cook dinner, serve the men, then eat with them. As a volunteer, we have been showered with an incredible amount of love from this group. The staff always expresses their appreciation, but more importantly, the men who reside at the mission express their appreciation. They are always so grateful. I think this is a testament to the kind of leaders this organization hires. The example of leadership, gratitude, thankfulness, respect and love is given to the men and in return, they extend the same grace to those who visit the mission. We are serving them, but they give so much back to us. They send us thank you notes, they give us hugs and over time, we've developed great relationships because of the environment the leaders of the organization create and the expectation they have on the men. This is one of the best volunteer experiences I've ever had.
One of the very best experiences of my year is helping make one of their most important fundraisers a huge success. As a committed Christian myself I am always overjoyed to witness first hand the significant life changing experiences of so many men with serious issues have discovered through The Muncie Mission. Each staff member is fully devoted to ministering to each man and helping achieve a better life and it is obvious as soon as you enter the building or listen to any staff member witness to a visitor. My life has changed also as I make time to assist with their mission. It is truly an experience from God that I truly cherish and will continue as long as possible.
I started volunteering at the mission about 4 months ago. Ray, Missy, and the staff made it work for me so I could work it into my job's schedule. I have thoroughly enjoyed the time spent there and would recommend it to any one that has a heart for the Lord and for people in need!!
My experience with the Muncie Mission has been very positive. Over the past several years I have had the opportunity to participate in functions both inside the facility, as well as witness the benfits of outreach programs. I have always enjoyed their Holiday functions, especially helping with the Thanksgiving Meal needs and more. I personally know Don Ford and Ray Raines and the outstanding job they do helping this community and men in need.
A true mission of service and honor to our Lord Jesus! Organized, clean, excellence in programs to help men needing a place to stay and hopefully open their hearts to the love of Jesus, in addition to helping those in the community who may just need a good meal or item of clothing, etc., etc. It is such a blessing to be a small part of this ministry who serves, serves and serves even more . . . a ministry with our Lord's mission! To God be the glory and Praise!
I started volunteering at the Muncie Mission about 2.5 years ago. I have always shopped at their clothing store and enjoyed attending services when our church has the responsibility of Sunday afternoon chapel. I volunteer on Mondays for 5-7 hours. I look forward to my time there each month. The full time employees and all the administration personal have become my friends and the men who live there are so kind to me. I have been trained to do many different jobs and I try to do my best for the Glory of the Lord. I do give my time to volunteer but I am more blessed by what I receive than what I give. Ephesians 2:10 - For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. This is where God wants me to be right now and I am thankful. I plan to be there Monday as usual.
Review from Guidestar
The Muncie Mission is a great organization that not only provides a great service to our community and those in need, but also provides great opportunities for my family to be involved in our community. I have served on the golf committee and played in the tournament in the past, but the most impactful opportunity that I have been involved with is delivering meals on Thanksgiving morning. This opportunity is great for my entire family. I have children who are 12 and 10, and this is one of the few opportunities that they can participate in. They love going to the homes of individuals who may not otherwise get a Thanksgiving meal or have family to share it with, and spend some time with these people!! We even sang happy birthday to one lady!!! My family is very blessed to have a great organization like the Muncie Mission to volunteer for in our community!! Sincerely, Eric Baize
In the scheme of what others have done to serve the Mission, my service pales in comparison. I helped with the Golf Tournament. I have also been blessed to be able to participate in the annual "Walk-A-Mile" events. When I consider the thousands of men the Mission has helped over the years, I am humbled by what God has done through these incredible servants who work so hard to help so many! -Chaz Smith
The Muncie Mission is a great organization that dedicates their time to improve the quality of life for others in need. Their mission radiates others in the community to be involved and they lead by example for us to follow.
I've been able to see first hand the amount of dedication and caring the people of the Muncie Mission share. It is amazing to see the amount of good they do for people who need assistance. The Muncie Mission is a first class orginization without a doubt.
The service the Muncie Mission provides makes a tremendous impact on our community and people they help. If they change one life, I consider it a success story.
Have seen the programs here impact those in the community & even those I use to work with. It never hit more close to the heart then when a former co-worker has battling his addictions with the assistance of the Muncie Mission. Even though he lost his fight & his life to his addiction, it is always a comfort to know they are there for others who seek help.
