Twenty eight years ago, two couples heard God’s call to help the homeless and hurting here in the Verde Valley. They drove to the park in a pick-up truck, dropped the tailgate, and served a hot bowl of soup to anyone who needed it. We have come a long way since that first bowl of soup, but what hasn’t changed is
the mission God has given us...to meet people where they are with what they need.
Old Town Mission has assisted over 36,000 men, women and children last year through programs and services including food, clothing, showers, hot lunches, eyeglasses, haircuts, and legal advice. Special outreaches like Operation: Back to School, The Great Turkey Give-Away, and Community Christmas Celebration have greatly impacted and blessed many people throughout the Verde Valley. These programs fill the gap for those who are facing tough economic times. The need this year continues to grow as we see more people and new families struggling to just make ends meet and survive.
Veterans, single moms and dads and their children, the elderly, the mentally challenged and the homeless are those among us that are impacted tremendously by the hearts and hands within our community as we partner together and truly make a difference in their lives.
The Old Town Mission has a rich and valuable resource found in the unique talents and expertise of its volunteers. With over 300 volunteers annually who donate over 26,000 hours, the Mission is able to offer a variety of specialized programs to its clients, with minimal cost to the organization.
Each day Old Town Mission provides between 200-300 men, women and children with services like meals, emergency food, clothing, hot showers & haircuts, and much more! From monetary to material to various levels of service, your support helps us help our Verde Valley neighbors in need!
