Mission: To glorify god by serving people in need, proclaiming the gospel and offering opportunity for christian counseling
Programs: Sunrise mission is a faith-based homeless shelter. We serve families and single adults. Sunrise mission was founded in 1989 by several local churches in conjunction with the family independence agency. We serve the counties of alpena, alcona, montmorency and presque isle, but there is no criteria for admittance, a person must only present themselves at the mission and ask for assistance to be admitted . In 2017 we served 224 people consisting of 115 single men, 81 single women, 41 men and women and children in families totaling 20 families. Guests are provided a warm, safe, clean bed and the ability to prepare meals themselves and their families, bathe, wash their clothing and have their basic needs met in a safe place. We provide case management for all our guests to assist them in overcoming the barriers that caused their homelessness and to regain their own home. This assistance could be parenting skills, job search skills, budgeting, life skills or assistance connecting with other agencies needed to regain their home. We assist our guests with prescription copays, transportation cost to get to and from jobs, job interviews and medical appointments. We assist with clothing, food, auto repairs and a variety of other needs.
