City Mission catalyzes action to root out poverty in our neighborhoods. Our strategic focus is on homelessness prevention.

Guiding Principles

As City Mission develops programs to unite communities and transform individuals, it chooses to emphasize programs which, at their core, embody the following three guiding principles:


City Mission creates and nurtures connections across disparate groups to broaden understanding and create meaningful, respectful, and mutually beneficial relationships.


City Mission educates and provides participants with the necessary resources to make informed decisions, confront challenges, and understand the larger context of complex social issues.


City Mission inspires and equips participants to directly effect change in their personal lives and to take action for systemic change.
