Washington City Mission
City Mission exists to share Christ, to shelter, to heal, and to restore the homeless to independent living....without discrimination.
Programs and Services
- Established in 1941, City Mission is a 160 bed homeless rehabilitation shelter that serves four distinct homeless populations: men, women, women with children, and veterans. In the last fiscal year, our service has included: 136,215 meals served, 56,048 nights of shelter provided, 9,716 medical interventions given, 11,521 clinical interventions given, 7,638 career/education/training interventions provided, 151 career assessments provided, 287 IDs obtained, 131 jobs obtained.
- Our newly-renovated men's shelter serves 94 men from all walks of life. The men who enter our doors have the ability to stay in our program for short-term emergency shelter or to enter our long-term Life Recovery Program. In this cutting edge program, our residents show a 65% average success outcome in the domains of Housing, Employment, Income, Recovery and Spirituality (HEIRS) at point of departure. If our residents remain longer than 90 days, their success outcome average rises to 72%.
- Our 14-bed Women's Shelter serves homeless women from SWPA, and addresses their addiction recovery, domestic violence issues, emotional and mental abuse issues, job and work readiness issues, and medical issues. Our goal is to help each women go from homelessness to sustainable independent living.
- Our newly-renovated Women with Children's Shelter opened in September 2018 and shelters 11 homeless families in their time of need. In addition to classes in addiction recovery, parenting, job readiness, relapse prevention, and budgeting, the shelter also provides child care so that the mothers can reach their full potential.
- Our Crabtree-Kovacicek House serves 22 homeless veterans, allowing them to recover and heal from addiction, PTSD, mental and medical issues, and joblessness. It also connects them, and often transports them, to the many veterans resources in SWPA. They've served us, now let's serve them. Research indicates that veterans recover from trauma best in groups of other veterans, and our high success outcomes among veterans illustrate how transformational our program can be.
