The Women’s section of the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission is in dire straits; parts of the building are condemned and unusable. Immanuel Lutheran Church is donating funds to the renovation of this area.
Good Samaritan Program
This program is the first level of the shelter services. It offers any woman a safe place to sleep for the evening.
In addition to a place to sleep, the Mission offers three meals a day, laundry services, hygiene products and clothing vouchers to the Rescued Treasures store.
The second level of the women's shelter is the general Shelter, which is divided into three parts: Single's Dorm, Women's Dorm and Family Shelter. This program offers more stability and is a short term solution for women, children and families looking for emergency housing. This program offers the basic needs of Good Samaritan, along with one-on-one staff support, free childcare and job and housing assistance.
