There are a variety of ways the body of Christ partners with Inner City Mission to help the homeless find lasting stability. Consider a role for yourself, your small group, your organization or your church:
Financial donations – Your monetary gifts change lives! We’ve found that a Biblical foundation is necessary for stability in the lives of the homeless, so ICM does not take government funding. We are supported solely by churches, individuals and businesses, so your financial donations are vital to our ministry and greatly appreciated.
Physical Donations – We accept household items, furniture, food donations, clothing, bedding, and even bicycles and automobiles! Besides taking care of needs, these items allow our residents to focus on the root causes of their homelessness and provide the opportunity they need to change their lives.
Volunteer Services – We would love to have you or your group provide a service like mowing, painting, raking, cooking a meal, babysitting or planning a resident activity or outing to help minister to the 35-40 women, children and families we house on any given day.
Spiritual Guidance – If you would like to prepare, lead or teach a Bible Study or S2S class or become a Prayer Partner to our residents, let us know. Classes and studies are on-going, so we’ll be more than happy to fit you into our schedule.
Adopt a Homeless Family –Mentor or become a Parent Partner to a homeless woman, child or family living at ICM. As a stable member of society, your advice and friendship can make all the difference to someone struggling to make it.
Book the Jeff Higginson Band. This uplifting worship band has raised $30,000 for Inner City Mission over the years.
Service Retreat at ICM – Your group will experience face-to-face ministry with the homeless while providing a much-needed service.
