Faith Mission started on February 6, 1966, in response to the City Mission closing its doors. Reverend Sam Goers, Roland Hepner and Arthur Basye of Trinity Lutheran Church were the original board members and volunteer staff. At that time, we were located at 181 East Long Street. The services offered at Faith Mission in 1966 included opening the doors at 5:00 p.m., serving a meal and providing beds for twelve men. In 1998, Faith Mission joined the Lutheran Social Services family.

Today, Faith Mission is a 24-hour emergency shelter, serving up to 199 men and 38 women at two locations: 151 N. 6th St. and 599 E. 8th Ave. Faith Mission is the only organization in Franklin County able to serve three meals a day, every day of the year. Our mission is to continue to create a better world by serving people in need.
