Educational Opportunities

When City Mission educates churches, students, youth groups, seminarians, and college groups, our staff and volunteers help develop leaders for today and tomorrow. We believe in spreading the knowledge around and encouraging people to learn more about their communities, themselves, and the systems that affect everyone. Our educational opportunities focus on homelessness prevention and the systems that impact it: poverty, racism, and inequality.
