History

1958 - Our First Shelter Opened

"God Will Move Into New Mission" declared newspaper man Glenn Shelton on April 14, 1958. Reverend Dick Hogan stepped out in faith to open a homeless shelter without any capital to fund the ministry. In 1958 Faith City Mission came into being on 7th and Ohio St., Wichita Falls, above Hornsby Heavy Hardware. The ministry was a branch effort of a mission with the same name in Amarillo, Texas. In the beginning, ministry was only for transient men. Rev. Dick and Bee Hogan, the founders of both the Amarillo and Wichita Falls missions, personally worked at the Ohio street facility in its early years. The sign above the door told struggling people, "If you are hungry, do not beg or steal. Come eat with us."

1963 - Start Running Out of Room...

In 1963, the mission's leaders realized there were no rooms to meet the needs of families. The leaders started praying and developing plans to increase the services to minister to families. In 1967 Rev. Jim Cook becomes the superintendent. Mr. Cook helped expansion of Faith City Mission.

1963 - Purchased the old Lamar Baptist Church

1988 - Faith Mission Shelter Opens

As programs and services grew, it became evident a larger facility was needed and property was purchased at our current location on Travis Street and construction began. The current Faith Mission shelter at 1300 Travis Street opened on May 23, 1988.

1988 - Addiction Recovery Programs Offered

As a result of the increased space and increasing donations, the ministry was able to provide a new addiction program called Overcomers Recovery Program. The mission started combating homelessness by offering this recovery program. The recovery program continues this day under the name New Beginnings.

2008 - Opening of Faith Resale!

In 2008, we opened our Faith Resale and Donation Center, so people can shop knowing that their purchases and donations will help to end homelessness!

2012 - 2nd Shelter Opens for Women & Families: Faith Refuge

To address the needs of the growing number of homeless women and families, a second shelter was added. Faith Refuge opened on May 7, 2012 with 17 women and seven children moving in. This new $4.4 million facility is located at 710 E. Hatton Rd. and was built debt free with the support of local partnerships and friends across the nation. Above all, the Faith team gives God the glory for providing the resources to complete the new shelter.

2018 - Opened Transitional House for Men

The Transitional Supportive Housing Program was established to provide an additional step toward self-sufficiency for our Program graduates. The program includes up to one year of transitional support, low cost rent, on-going case management, weekly meetings, structure and accountability, and an opportunity to grow in relational skills while sharing in the house governance.

2019 - Opened Transitional House for Women
