The HIS Center
The HIS Center provides overnight housing for men seven days a week. We have 101 beds plus space for mattresses on the floor, when necessary. HIS Center guests have access to the Agape Café during the day. The HIS Center was remodeled in 2008.
HIS Center guests are provided with a bed, three meals each day, showers, clean clothing, personal hygiene items, employment assistance, laundry facilities, mail services and access to legal assistance. Guests who are working can get a sack lunch. Our men have access to one-on-one counseling, various classes and are encouraged to participate in Bible Studies and chapel services.
Sheltering homeless men was the main reason that People's City Mission was established in 1907. Our men struggle with homelessness, isolation, health issues, eviction, addictions, depression and other mental health issues, job loss, and educational deficits. A significant number of our men are veterans.
People's City Mission works with many different types of men, encouraging each to make progress in a manner that best fits his situation. Regardless of the problem, we believe there is hope and opportunity for everyone coming through our doors.
Many men can move into economic self-sufficiency if they receive the right type of assistance, guidance and encouragement. People's City Mission offers a hand up, not just a handout. We continue to work with people to meet their physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs, and do this through the support of thousands of individuals in our community.
