There are many situations that cause a person or family to experience homelessness including low-wage jobs, high housing costs, job loss, domestic violence, physical or mental disabilities, substance abuse, death of a family member, and/or a catastrophic illness.
Established in the year 2016, Friendly Mission has been investing into the lives of the homeless in Savannah, Georgia, and the surrounding area. Our goal is to uplift those who are in need while helping them discover their own sense of dignity and purpose. We do this by offering street ministry and prayer to providing southern-cooked meals along with rides to church.
We work together through our communities to bring forward the means to enable individuals to gain a stronger footing on ending homelessness. As servants who through faith and work we are able to accomplish the will of our heavenly Father, Jesus Christ. “14 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.” (James 2:14-17)Read More
Underneath the Truman Parkway lies tents, couches, people and tons of trash. Just over the make-shift bridge is one of the most well-known homeless sites in Savannah. When you don’t have anywhere to go and no one to turn to for help, you could wake up and find yourself in a homeless camp just like this one.
Every Sunday we provide the homeless with an opportunity to go to church and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Becky is so faithful in running her transportation route on the west side of Savannah – always picking up Ron, Bishop, Albert, Flo, and Chuck.
