PEOPLE’S CITY MISSION
People’s City Mission has been a vital part of the Lincoln community for almost 100 years. They were founded in 1907 by a number of local churches in the city that wanted to demonstrate Christ’s love to people who were impoverished and homeless by providing them with emergency assistance of food, shelter, and clothing. Over the years, their purpose has remained the same: bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the poor and homeless, and demonstrate His love for them by meeting basic human needs. More than five hundred thousand people have been assisted by their ministry.
“I for some reason thought that the last time I was hit it would be the last time. I never had the strength to end it, til one day I had a shotgun pointed at me and my two sons. Luckily I had emptied the barrel…my ex-husband pulled the trigger, nothing happened, but boy did I take a beating that time, but I survived. I am now married to a man who does love me…” Friendship Home exists to support, shelter, and advocate for women who are victims of domestic violence and their children.
City Impact responds to the felt needs of hurting people in Lincoln. They redistribute community resources to help low-income families develop skills, relationships, networks and hope for success. They relocate lives and resources to the inner city and passionately stress “loving your neighbor“. City Impact believes in reconciling God to people across racial, cultural and socioeconomic barriers. Raising up responsible, indigenous urban community leadership is just one of their primary goals.
