Thanks for visiting us!
Victory Mission, Inc. has been reaching out to the homeless of Salinas, and much of Monterey county, since 1959. For over 60 years, we have lived with the people we serve in the darkest corner of Salinas - the Chinatown area. Bringing the light of God's love to this area has been an incredible challenge and a wonderful blessing!
Over the past years, we have been blessed to see so many men (through our Fresh S.T.A.R.T. Recovery/Re-entry Program) discover the true source of strength that helps each of us become successful and productive in our lives and communities - God!
Although, we do not have a Women's Shelter facility (yet!), Christ's love is still shared with them through our hot meals (hot and nutritious dinners 365 days a year), clothing (YOUR donations!), food bags for both single women and those with children) and referrals to other shelters or services.
Through our Men's Shelter and Fresh S.T.A.R.T. Recovery/Re-Entry Program (featuring Celebrate Recovery) men are given both immediate help and the opportunity to find the path and strength to change their failures into real hope. Through the truths of God's Word and the power of the presence of God's Holy Spirit, each man coming to Victory Mission's Recovery/Re-Entry program has the opportunity to get an exciting, successful new start!
DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC WE HAVE HAD TO CLOSE OUR OVERNIGHT SHELTER. WE WILL RE-OPEN ONCE THE THREAT OF INFECTION IS AT A MANAGEABLE LEVEL, WE HOPE THIS WILL BE IN EARLY 2021.
