IN 1925, A WOMAN NAMED HELEN HAIEN HAD THE VISION TO REACH CHILDREN FROM LOWER-INCOME FAMILIES IN PEORIA WITH THE LOVE OF JESUS.
She would go out, pick up children, and bring them back to her house on Sanger Street for an all-day Sunday School. The inhabitants of the area were not only economically disadvantaged, but had little hope of moving beyond their present physical conditions. Over the years, her Sunday School grew so large that she had to move out of the house and into a larger building on Olive Street. South Side Mission changed locations several times before building on the present campus at 1127 South Laramie Street in 1970.
While the location has changed over the years, one thing has remained constant. The South Side Mission's aim is not only to alleviate the powerful physical poverty of those on the south end but a determination to offer life-transforming change through the spiritual hope of Jesus Christ.
