Heartside Community Center

Heartside Community Center, a partnership of Mel Trotter Ministries & Degage Ministries

Mel Trotter Ministries has relocated its day center. In December 2017, Mel Trotter Ministries and Degage Ministries entered into a partnership to offer the Heartside Community Center together at what was once called the Degage Ministries dining room located on 144 Division Avenue South. This partnership helps extend the services hours and provides more staff on-site to help people get the help and hope they need.

The space provides a safe, warm space out of the elements for people who are experiencing homelessness. Guests who go to the center can rest, get a cup of coffee, get access to resources they need to find homes, jobs, veterans service, mental health services, health care and hope.


Daily:  7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.


If you have any questions, please call the Heartside Community Center (inside Degage Ministries) 616-454-1661 or email MTM at info@meltrotter.org.
