Our Mission

TO PROVIDE A PLACE OF REFUGE FOR RECOVERY AND RESTORATION THROUGH THE POWER AND LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

Since 1948, the Modesto Gospel Mission has provided nutritious meals, warm beds, and a place of safety to thousands of poor and homeless men, women, and children.

The Mission is able to serve some of the most broken people in our community by helping them get off the streets and radically change their lifestyle through a myriad of programs and services. We offer hope through the love of Jesus – in word and deed. The Mission ministers to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each guest. More than a food bank or soup kitchen, we provide daily shelter, clothing, meals, showers, Bible studies, life skills classes, employment training and assistance, addiction recovery, a medical clinic, and more. To meet these needs, the Modesto Gospel Mission depends on local gifts from individuals, churches, groups, foundations, and businesses that care about the poor and homeless in Stanislaus county.

Our Past

The Modesto Gospel Mission had its beginnings in 1948 when John Haine saw the need to feed the hungry and homeless men of Modesto with food for the body, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ for their souls. Leftover funds from Billy Graham’s very first crusade provided the seed money, and a group of Christian businessmen became the first Board of Directors.

Our Future

The vision for Modesto Gospel Mission is to provide a place for refuge, recovery, and restoration.  The Mission provides assistance with obtaining high school diplomas and GEDs at no cost, recovery programs such as the New Life Program, and with the help of staff and open-hearted volunteers, have changed countless lives in the community.
