Our Mission

Our Mission

We endeavor to provide a safe place for people that are unhoused or underprivileged to come and receive food, encouragement and ultimately restoration of dignity through counsel and spiritual guidance.

Our mission is to feed, encourage and restore those who are unhoused and underprivileged by providing nourishment, basic hygiene access and laundry access in order to provide dignity and a reprieve from the harshness of their everyday reality.

In our quest to provide these services we also endeavor to provide a safe space for individuals to share needs both physical and mental as well as spiritual.

Our model is after James 2:15 - 17,

"If a brother or a sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, "Go in peace, be warmed and filled," without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead."



Meals and Support Services at The Salvation Army


Every Tuesday from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM join us for a nourishing meal at The Salvation Army in Arnold, MO.


Along with a satisfying meal, we offer access to social services and counseling for those in need.  We also provide access to a shower and laundry.
