HISTORY
The Modesto Gospel Mission began in 1948 when Mr. John Haine responded to the need to provide food for hungry and homeless men and share the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Leftover funds from Billy Graham's very first crusade (in Modesto) provided the seed money, and a group of Christian businessmen became the first Board of Directors. The original location on 8th Street was not large enough for a shelter, so a move was made a few years later to 918 H Street where the ministry was located for many years.

As Stanislaus County grew, it became necessary to expand the services available and to begin to include women and children. Facilities for Men were moved to the Airport Neighborhood in 1984; a Women and Women with Children shelter opened in 1985; the Community Distribution Center in 1991 (provides clothing and small household items to the next level of poor); a Fathers with Children shelter opened in 2000; and the Children's Center completed the campus in 2003.

The Modesto Gospel Mission is this area's primary emergency shelter, and is completely privately funded. It receives NO government funding and is not a United Way agency. Five meals are served every day (resulting in over 10,000 meals each month), and about 2,000 men, women, boys and girls are sheltered each year.

As society has gotten more complicated, the methods to help people become productive members of society have needed to improve. In addition to the basic needs of food, clothing and shelter, the Mission offers New Life Programs, Education and Employment Programs, Addiction Recovery, Children's Programs, Medical Programs, Resource Counseling, Spiritual Counseling, and a hand of love to everyone who comes for help. We are aggressively addressing a problem facing communities across America, "What do we do with the homeless?"


Our main office is open from 9:00am-5:00pm Monday through Friday.
Our facilities are open 24/7.

MISSION
For the betterment of the community.
For the relief of suffering and despair.
For the rehabilitation of wrecked lives.
For the saving of lost souls.
