History

We began in 1950 as the Flint Rescue Mission on the banks of the Flint River at Grand Traverse Street. We've been led by Jon Schaich, Jerry Peaster, Bob Sweeney, Lois St. Clair and now Dr. Dallas Gatlin...Only 5 directors in 70 years! We've been supported throughout those years by faithful churches and individuals who recognize the calling of Matthew 25 to ministers to the hungry, the thirsty and the individuals in need of a place to stay. Today we are a campus of learning and restoration in Flint's historic Carriage Town neighborhood. Visitors and residents find a haven of safety and acceptance, learning and responsibility, structure and productivity...A place to find a new birth, a sense of purpose for today and hope for tomorrow.


Program accomplishments

Today we have 135 beds (the most in the county) for men, women and children in need. Each year we provide over 49,000 clean, safe beds, distribute 213,000 meals, and provide 350,000 pieces of clothing free of charge to the community. The Lafia Learning Center is open to the community and sees 80 students each month.
