Help Provide the Basics of Comfort and Care

At 63 years old, Peter found himself homeless. He lived on the streets of Springfield for several months, dragging his few belongings and tattered sleeping bag in a heavy satchel. But as winter set in-and his health declined-he wondered how he would survive.

So he turned to Springfield Victory Mission.

"It's a blessing to be able to come here when it's cold," he says. "I can shower and change my clothes. They have a laundry facility and really good meals. It's wonderful to have a place that will do that for people like me."

This winter, scores of people like Peter will seek refuge from the cold. They'll be offered a nutritious meal, a cleansing shower, a freshly made bed and essentials they may have gone without for far too long: things like shampoo, soap, a toothbrush and toothpaste. Then they're introduced to compassionate professionals who offer guidance that will empower them to rebuild their lives.

For those who have suffered on the streets -especially in the dead of winter- the basic comforts and care they find at the Mission can feel like luxuries. Yet they're simply essential to survival and to treating all our guests with dignity.

Generous giving from kind and compassionate people make these blessings possible!

As the excitement of the holidays gives way to keeping New Year's resolutions and busy daily routines, please don't forget the Mission and the people who, for now, call our shelters home. Any gift you can share-no matter the amount- will be so deeply appreciated.
