Mission

Since 1948, Modesto Gospel Mission has provided nutritious meals, warm beds and a place of safety for thousands of poor and homeless men, women and children. Through various services, we are able to help someone go from homeless to home. We touch lives with the love of Jesus and offer hope where there is despair. We minister to the whole person: physically, emotionally and spiritually. We do this by providing emergency and ongoing shelter, clothing, meals 3 times per day, a day program, a residential 18-month life-transformation program, Bible studies, life skills classes, GED assistance, work therapy, employment training and assistance, addiction recovery, medical clinic, after-school programs and tutoring for at-risk children/youth, transitional housing, supportive housing, and more.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our organization is aiming to accomplish being a true impact to homelessness through the power and love of Jesus Christ in Modesto, CA. We aim to resolve the issue of homelessness one soul at a time.

One strategy is having an outreach team that will go out and tackle homelessness in our parks and on the streets of Modesto, CA. The other strategy is to have an greater impact with case management with the clinics we serve.

Our organization provides mature chaplains that are completely equipped to simulate a team to impact our city and reach the lost of this community through the power and love of Jesus Christ.

We have accomplished through the Lords hand watching many men and women lives be transformed through our 18-month New Life Program. We aim next to maximize this program to touch more women and men in our community.

  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
