Since 1929 St. Michael’s Mission has been offering crucial services to some of our most disadvantaged and vulnerable citizens. Our motto, “More Than Just a Bowl of Soup” speaks to the welcome that greets everyone who walks through our red door and goes beyond a hot meal to include valuable support, guidance and community. Our clients include men and women who are experiencing food insecurity, homelessness, isolation, mental illness, addictions and poverty.
