• One last thing:
We are celebrating our 65th year serving Stanislaus County. Open 24/7, the Modesto Gospel Mission is committed to meeting the physical, spiritual and emotional needs of every person who comes for help and hope. The Mission receives no government funding and is supported entirely by individuals and groups with a heart for the poor and homeless. All programs are free.
There is a saying that “No one comes to the mission for help on a good day.” Those that come to us for help come broken and usually with no other place to go, addicted, estranged from family, hurting, and in need of a kind word. They come for safety from the violence on the street and rest for a weary soul.
