Pledge Your Support

When you see someone holding a “Work For Food” sign… You think, “Give money? Look away? Buy him some food?”… Wouldn’t you like to know you are doing the right thing!

Our monthly pledge program allows you to give regularly, through a monthly gift of any size. Then you know you are always helping homeless and needy men, women and children – without ever doing the wrong thing. As a pledge partner, you also have the opportunity to be more involved in the services of the Mission through special events and tours – if you choose.

Won’t you consider becoming a Monthly Pledger?
