Through shelter services, we provide warm meals, safety, and the compassion of Christ.
With smaller, dorm-style suites and specialized case managers we walk alongside guests to provide the relationships and resources to leave homelessness for good. MTM helps guests get back on their feet, overcome addiction, work through trauma, and connect or be connected to their faith once more.

“It’s a really amazing program,” said Vanessa*. “After seeing my husband complete his GED, it gave me the courage to go get mine.”
Simon and Vanessa
Simon and Vanessa both grew up in the inner city. “Life was just life, so we got used to it,” she said. What that life looked like was this: Simon did not complete high school. He became a father as a teenager, prior to his marriage to Vanessa. Upon meeting her and starting their own family together, the couple wanted to further their lives.
