Each year, Faith Mission provides more than 83,000 nights of shelter to men, women and veterans and serves three meals a day to anyone who is experiencing homelessness. In addition, we offer case management, employment assistance and a health center to help clients overcome barriers to self sufficiency. The Community Kitchen at Faith Mission serves three meals a day to anyone who is hungry.
No matter their situation, when a person arrives at Faith Mission, they are treated fairly, with dignity and without judgment.
For more than 50 years we’ve seen the effects of homelessness and have been there to help not only with immediate needs like shelter, food and clothing, but also with long-term solutions such as housing, employment and supportive case management.
Faith Mission has the only community kitchen in Franklin County that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the year. We provide about 600 meals a day to anyone in the community who is hungry and are thankful for the donated goods that allow us to operate on a minimal budget.
The Faith Mission Resource Centers provide clients with access to phones and personal voicemail, a fax machine, computers with Internet access, bus passes and directories of Columbus services.
Faith Mission addresses the medical needs of our clients at the Faith Mission Health Center. Local health care professionals volunteer to staff this clinic and offer a variety of services at no cost to homeless individuals. These services include dental, podiatry, vision and general medical services.
Shelter residents are assigned a case manager who helps them address the barriers that led to their homelessness. Once these obstacles are overcome, residents are able to find stable permanent housing.
The Stable Families Program through the Siemer Institute for Family Stability is a national program that helps families at immediate risk of losing housing or at immediate risk of becoming homeless.
