City Gospel Mission helps the homeless and hurting break the cycle of poverty and despair … one life at a time. We engage, equip and empower those in need with the spiritual, emotional, mental and physical skills and resources to achieve long-term life transformation and self-sufficiency. Our proven programs and services are centered on caring, personal relationships focused in four key service areas: food and shelter, recovery, at-risk youth and job readiness and placement.
We collaborate with more than 350 local churches and 2,500 volunteers to annually serve more than 6,800 adults and 3,500 youth.
We offer job readiness and placement programs for people who have felonies and limited work histories as well as people who do not. Our traditional 10-week job readiness program helps men and women with life challenges prepare for success on the job. Our Fast Track program helps advanced clients find a job more quickly. We also have a mentoring program at River City Correctional Center.
