Mission: Homelessness continues to be a serious and growing problem in Philadelphia. The Whosoever Gospel equips homeless men with the skills and resources they need to achieve productive, independent living.
Target demographics: homeless men
Direct beneficiaries per year: 199 homeless, disadvantaged men through our New Life Program and hundreds of needy people through our thrift store ministry.
Geographic areas served: Philadelphia
Programs: The Whosoever Gospel Mission introduces broken and hurting homeless men to the loving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, provides for their basic needs and also equips them with the skills and resources they need to achieve a fulfilling life, a lifestyle of recovery from addiction, meaningful employment, financial self-sufficiency, and productive, independent living. All of our services are free and provided without charge.
From childhood, my parents would take me to volunteer on Saturday afternoons at the mission. Whether I was peeling potatoes or sorting donations for the thrift store, I loved the opportunity to go and serve at the mission. Now that I'm grown, I take the opportunity to invest in the mission financially. Although I don't get the chance to volunteer as much as I would like, I know that my contributions to the mission make a difference. Each month, we receive an information newsletter telling how lives have been changed and people are being transformed through the work of the mission. I am glad to partner with Whosoever as they continue to minister to the homeless and hurting men of Philadelphia!
