Since 1948, the Modesto Gospel Mission has provided nutritious meals, warm beds, and a place of safety to thousands of poor and homeless men, women, & children. More than a food bank or soup kitchen, we provide daily shelter, clothing, meals, showers, Bible studies, life skills classes, employment training and assistance, addiction recovery, a medical clinic, and more. To meet these needs, the Modesto Gospel Mission depends on local gifts from individuals, churches, groups, foundations, and businesses that care about the poor and homeless in Stanislaus county.

The Modesto Gospel Mission had its beginnings in 1948 when John Haine saw the need to feed the hungry and homeless men of Modesto with food for the body, and the Gospel of Jesus Christ for their souls. Leftover funds from Billy Graham's very first crusade provided the seed money, and a group of Christian businessmen became the first Board of Directors.

Program accomplishments


The Modesto Gospel Mission relies on donations from the community to support our efforts with the homeless.
