Purpose

Our Vision: Cultivating a community of new life; breaking the cycle of hopelessness; building the kingdom of God!

To effectively meet both the immediate and long-term challenges of those we serve, the Erie City Mission has five core programs that focus on both intervention and prevention needs. Our intervention programs include an emergency men's shelter, long-term addictions recovery for men and women, and hunger relief through free meals. Our prevention program, Urban University, offers educational, leadership and career exploratory opportunities to inner-city youth.


Mission statement

The mission of the Erie City Mission is "Restoring Hope and Transforming Lives". The Mission seeks to cultivate a community of new life, break the cycle of hopelessness and ultimately build the Kingdom of God.
