Together, we can do immeasurably more.
We have raised a total of $11.4 million in donations and pledges to date. What this means is now, more than at any point in our 120+ years of serving the homeless, we are in need of each and every member of this community—God’s collective community—to come together in unity. To provide hope and help to those who need it the most.

Immeasurably More Compassion
At Mel Trotter Ministries, we dare for more and we dream for more for our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness.
Homelessness is a season in a person’s life, but it doesn’t define who they are. We know they are made in the image of God, with value and worth. We know they deserve dignity, safety and compassion. We believe they are made for more.
Immeasurably More is a $14.9 million capital campaign for Mel Trotter Ministries that will:
Update shelter spaces that have not received significant improvements since 1967 to provide greater dignity, value and safety for our guests and reinforce the love God has for each of them.
Equip for work through paid job training and social enterprise opportunities so parents can provide a better life for their children away from homelessness.
Create more affordable housing for guests on their journey out of homelessness and help parents, children and singles discover the life God has for them out of homelessness.
Improve and enhance the ministry and case management available to every guest resulting in better stewardship of donor resources and greater impact in the lives of those we are blessed to serve.
