About

To empower men, build self-esteem, provide a temporary solution.

Many men have job skills and are capable of performing a variety of jobs. The opportunity to work builds self-esteem in the worker, provides a temporary solution for the employer, and can lead to permanent employment for the Faith Mission client.

A Day Labor area is located outside the mission at the intersection of 13th and Travis Streets.

Employers can drive by Faith Mission to hire a worker. The employer often needs to furnish transportation. Working together with the community, we can rescue, rehabilitate, and reintegrate homeless persons!

Location

The Day Labor area is located outside the Faith Mission Shelter at the intersection of 13th and Travis Streets.

” The Career Academy gave me confidence for the interviewing process and increased my knowledge and skills for the current job market. I now work as a manager for a local retailer!  “
