How You Can Help

It Takes a City.

Our vision at The City Mission is to be a catalyst for positive change in Cleveland, resulting in the radical transformation of individuals and communities for generations to come.  Cleveland is experiencing a revival, but there are thousands still living broken lives.  We need funds, support, and collaboration from people in every neighborhood and background.  How will you choose to contribute to restoring the men, women, and children living in crisis today?


If you don’t think your daily work can have an eternal impact, than you haven’t worked with our Christ-loving staff before. Everyone who is called to serve at The City Mission faithfully walks with Jesus, allowing His love to pour through them into the lives of those we serve. Serving together in Christ can have a life-changing impact on the men, women, and children who come to us in crisis. It is through the power of Jesus that their lives are forever changed. We invite you to prayerfully consider joining our Christian mission to serve together and see firsthand how impactful your work can be. “Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.”” Matthew 19:26


Giving the gift of your time is truly a remarkable blessing. Whether it’s a one time act to help us paint, clean, or restore a room at Laura’s Home or Crossroads, or helping as we restore dignity to our residents who come to us with only the clothes on their backs and sorting and organizing the many material donations we receive, or assisting with our tiniest residents in our child care center, you can help us transform the lives of so many by volunteering. Consider the many ways your time can make a powerful impact by becoming a volunteer today. 


Saturday, September 10th, 2022 we will hold our 11th Annual Running with a Mission and we hope you can join us! You can join our 5k run or 1 mile in person or virtually. There will be fun for the whole family throughout the event with a kid’s dash, live DJ, and lots more. You can also help us present the event as a sponsor or volunteer. All proceeds go directly to the care and resources offered to the residents of The City Mission. Last year $100,000 were raised to help men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in Cleveland.


“Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath!” Psalm 116:2. Your prayers can have a powerful impact on the lives of everyone who enters our doors. By signing up to receive our monthly Prayer Partner emails, you can become a powerful prayer warrior and seek the Lord’s guidance on behalf of so many we serve. We invite you to join us through the power of prayer as we ask the Holy Spirit to guide these men, women, and children, so that their lives will forever be rooted in Christ’s love.
