Last week, the Mission hosted its annual Community Golf Classic. This year’s Golf Classic was hosted at Southern Trace Country Club and raised a grand total of $58,200.
Funds raised from the Golf Classic are used to provide homeless men, women and children with food, clothing, shelter, small/large group classes, one-on-one case management, life coaching, counseling, vocational training, on-site medical and dental care and more. Over the course of a year these funds help to provide guests with 115,000 healthy meals, 56,000 safe nights of shelter, 4,800 medical and dental services, 19,000 hours of classes, 90,000 hours of Vocational Training and more than 2,000 hours of case management. Last year, the Mission served 1,384 homeless men, women and children.
Our services are only available because of the generosity of our community. As a Christ-centered ministry, we do not solicit for state or federal funding so programs at the Mission are available solely because of the generosity of our amazing community.
