We have served El Paso since 1952

Our Services


Residential Life


Overall we can house 193 people at a time, and we average 130 people per night. We house men, women, families, those with medical needs, low income renters, and those in Relapse Prevention. As a Mission we strive to provide a family friendly environment that allows our residents to feel the love of God in all we do.

When residents come in we meet their needs by providing a home, 3 meals a day, clothing, laundry facilities, and other basic needs like toiletries. We also ask our residents to meet with one of our case workers, our nurse, our chaplain, and our job search coordinator. By doing this we help our residents meet their specific needs. Such as first getting glasses, a license, a job, and finally moving into permanent housing.  We also provide spiritual and social activities such as Bible studies, game nights, movie nights, art classes, and more.


Corner of Hope


On the other side of our block, we have the Corner of Hope. This is our outreach to the homeless community who are in need, but are not current residents. The facility provides food and drinks, a place to shower, clean clothes, and laundry machines completely free of charge. 

The Corner of Hope connects the Mission with people who normally do not trust shelters. As we serve our guests, we build trust and hope that they choose to come to the Mission and begin to rebuild their lives. Ultimately though, we just want to show people that God’s love is faithful and that we provide a nurturing environment no matter where they choose to live.


Relapse Prevention


The Relapse Prevention program is a 13 week course that some of our residents and non-residents choose to take. It is a faith-based program that addresses the physical, mental, social, and spiritual concepts of recovery from a biblical perspective. 

Each of these aspects is dealt with on an individual level and in group settings. While all of our students may not have started as residents, we do require all students to live on our property during the 13 weeks. Together they address their struggles and learn how to overcome them with God’s help. Once the students have finished the program, we encourage them to stay with us for another 6 months to continue helping them.
