Accomplishment, service and community are words that characterize The Midnight Mission. For nearly 100 years, The Midnight has been the premier provider of life changing services to people experiencing homelessness in Southern California.
We go beyond providing food and the basic necessities of life. For the last 40 years, we have also provided addiction treatment and recovery to those who are ready to step into the light. Our transitional Family Housing facility will celebrate 20 years in 2014, and continues to go beyond emergency care by providing long-term solutions by utilizing structure, accountability and opportunity.
As you read our 2012 Annual Report, remember your contribution helps us provide a bridge to self-sufficiency to those we serve. We cannot do it without you. This report tells the story of our past year.
• Accomplishment: the ability to serve over one million meals and provide for our homeless and near-homeless guests
• Service: nearly 60,000 volunteer hours helped to support all the free services The Midnight provides without government assistance
• Community: relationships being strengthened between our valued friends and supporters, and the vulnerable population of Skid Row by providing engaging events
With our continued partnership, we can make 2013 an even more productive and hopeful year for those in the Skid Row community. As donors and volunteers work selflessly in giving of their resources and time, to do something positive for others in our community, it evokes a feeling of accomplishment in all of us.
This is the day to grow together in our commitment and dedication as we head into our 100th year of operation.
