The People That Love Church And
Mission, Inc., is a 501 (c) (3) not for
profit corporation. We are
chartered under the laws of the
State of Florida.
From our point of view homeless men are
those who want to live in a fixed asset but
have lost the wherewithal to do so.
Many different circumstances arise that
cause a person go homeless and it is our
vocation to help those that will get back
on their feet.
By providing them a free place to stay for
30 days they can accumulate funds to
move on. Those who do not have a job
must go to day labor to get work. It may
take two or three days but those who are
serious will get a ticket and make money.
During this period of time, after the work
day, we conduct church services, bible
studies and a weekly movie, seven days a
week. We are serious about our
Christianity and by our own testimony we
know that Jesus Christ is the only way to
change your life. By allowing Him to take
charge of their lives the men can turn
their situation around and cease from the
works that caused them to become
The men's shelter is a free gift of the Lord
to those who seek Him. This may not be
the place for you if you don't believe. To
stay here is a choice made from one's
own willing spirit.
Homelessness is a
ruthless enemy of
society. It alienates
communities and
deprives those it holds
captive of life. It is
JESUS accepts many of
it's victims when no
one else will. He heals
and comforts. The Lord
offers hope where
none exists. He
restores a soul and He
gives life. The LORD
will not judge a person
on the street while they
walk in the mortal flesh,
rather He extends His
hand in compassion. He
doesn't look at your
disposition or mentality.
Instead, He gazes at
the inner spirit and
there He gives hope
and the chance to
receive His
SPIRIT and  to be born
again. A new life.
This man was a
difficult case.
Removed from an ALF
because of his refusal
to obey the rules he
ended up on the
street. We were able
to get him into the VA.
We will place those
who we cannot
accommodate with
agencies than can
help them.
