Besides those who are homeless, we also have quite a few hardworking families who are just trying to make ends meet come in, and in many cases, we can help and encourage these families.

Those who get our help should try and give back a little bit of what they can.

We assign small, simple tasks around the place to those who eat in the soup kitchen.

If someone is staying in the Sierra House, we require them to work a little bit at the Mission, and we will soon be starting a small community garden and greenhouse where they can grow some of their own food.

And we are also starting a more in-depth assessment and education program for our regular clients (as in teaching a man to fish).

The courts and income support division also send those willing to do community service to help.  And local schools send students to their internship programs.

“Seven out of 10 Americans are one paycheck away from being homeless.”

Here are a few stories of those we have helped

(In some cases, the names have been changed)

Sorry… It looks like some of these stories disappeared somewhere along the line and when I get the time I’ll add them.  For now, you can Read more about the Silver City Gospel Mission’s homeless in the book, “Stories And Recipes From The Soup Kitchen.”
