The Mission provides a complete change of clothing to our guests as needed. We maintain a large clothing storage area (shown in the photograph) which contains shirts, pants, coats, underwear and socks, and shoes. Our clothing articles are donated to us by both individuals and local churches. We also provide to our guests toiletries including soap, shampoo, toothbrushes and paste. In exchange for clothing, we take soiled men’s clothes and after washing, place these clothes in our clothing storage room for reissue to the men.
Proof of I.D. and no more than 2 bags to bring with you.
A hot meal is served each evening to our guests. Our dining room (shown in the photos) can serve up to 40 men. The evening meal is prepared by SARM staff and served at the completion of the worship service.
In addition, a light breakfast (pastry, juice and coffee) is served to the men as they depart the mission each morning. The Mission obtains its food through donations by individuals, companies and churches and by spot purchasing. Our kitchen is well equipped, city approved and includes oven, gas range, microwave, large refrigerator, walk-in freezer, and high speed dishwasher.
Each night at 7:00 PM, we conduct a worship service for our guests. We usually begin the worship service with a music program which often includes singing favorite old hymns.
Our worship leaders can be either ordained ministers or lay ministers. The only requirement is that all preaching be scriptually based and scriptually sound and that the central message always revolve around Christ’s love for each man and His saving grace.
