Our programs are designed for enrolled students who were previously homeless and or low-income, ex-offenders, and veterans, allowing them the opportunity to give back while training, serving, and preparing meals to over 400 homeless, weekly at the Clara White Mission. Our mission is a safety net, providing opportunities through our comprehensive continuum while combining feeding, life skills curriculum, housing, vocational training, job placement, and veteran services, with our community as our partners. The Clara White Mission puts people back on the tax rolls.
A tradition that started with Clara White feeding neighbors in the 1880s, the mission’s feeding program provides hot, nutritious meals to our area’s homeless population seven days a week.
Food is not enough, housing is not enough. Our education programs help individuals live self-supporting live with fulfilling careers in culinary arts and janitorial services.
