THE MIDNIGHT MISSION offers a path to self-sufficiency to men, women and children who have lost everything. Our emergency services and 12-step recovery programs offer a compassionate bridge to productive lives. We remove obstacles and provide the accountability and structure that the people who are experiencing homelessness need to rejoin their communities. Our conviction and commitment to their success define us.
