Washington City Mission Charity Profile
All are welcome at the Washington City Mission. The community’s compassion has long secured our roots, and our branches reach further into the community every day. Since 1941, when Burt McCausland, a local businessman and minister, opened a storefront soup kitchen and chapel for neighbors who became impoverished during the Depression, we have remained steadfast in our purpose—to share Christ, to shelter, to heal, and to restore the homeless to independent living – without discrimination.
In the beginning, homeless men were the primary recipients of services. However, in 1986, the Mission opened the Avis Arbor Women and Children’s Shelter to meet the needs of the fastest growing homeless population – women and children.
The Arbuckle Medical Clinic was established in 1993 with a donation from the late James Arbuckle, a long-time supporter of the Mission, the Arbuckle Medical Clinic provides free preventive, primary, and urgent health care to the Washington City Mission’s 80 residents and many other homeless and uninsured neighbors in our community. The clinic works interdependently with all services offered at the Washington City Mission and cooperatively with community agencies and institutions such as assisted-care homes, addiction treatment centers, the Veterans Administration, The Washington Hospital and Crossing the Jordan Christian Health Center.

Volunteers are a very important part of our ministry at Washington City Mission. We could not have helped poor and homeless for over 65 years if it were not for the help of volunteers. There is a place for you at Washington City Mission!
