About Us

Faith Mission of Elkhart, Inc. is a Christian social service agency which provides food, shelter, clothing and other services for homeless individuals.

The Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization independently governed by a volunteer board of directors. Funding for Faith Mission comes from individuals, churches and local businesses. We are not a United Way member agency and receive very limited Government funding.

How YOU Can Help

Imagine this: 10 hungry men. But only enough food to fill 9 plates.

Wouldn’t you do ANYTHING to make sure that hungry person got a plate of food too?

Today, you can!

It all starts by giving now – you’ll be giving every man, woman and child who comes to Faith Mission a hot, nutritious meal. Thank you!
