Provide individuals in need with the necessary assistance and support to overcome homelessness and achieve healing.
More than just food and shelter, our programs help break the cycle of homelessness and restore lives for the long-term.
12-Month New Life Program (Men)

Building off a foundation of transformation through Jesus Christ, the New Life Program exists to encourage men as they prepare for their return to society. The New Life Program is designed to help individuals escape and recover from homelessness and addiction through practical, spiritual, emotional, social, educational, vocational, financial teaching, and encouragement. During this 12-month program, residents rebuild work ethic through hands-on, transferable working skills doing jobs around the facilities; attend weekly life skills classes; attend one-on-one meetings weekly with chaplains for accountability services and case management; attend daily Bible studies; meet for financial advising once a week; and are encouraged to find a local church to attend. Program residents also participate in classes such as Anger Management, Addiction Studies, Healthy Boundaries, Financial Literacy, and Career Development. After career development is completed, the program residents are assisted in finding outside employment by local agencies. Once employed, they are given 6 months to save money, pay off debts, purchase a vehicle, and save for independent housing.  

Aftercare is also available after completing the program. The Mission offers outside low-rent housing with continued accountability, goal setting, and case management. This offers the graduate ample time to reach their goals of transitioning into society successfully. 

We look forward to celebrating new found life and accomplishments through the Modesto Gospel Mission and Jesus Christ.

Youth Center

Open to the public 5 days a week, the Youth Center is open for regular activities from 2:30pm to 7pm. On Friday nights from 9pm to 11pm the Youth Center opens its doors to teens for a program called G.A.T.E. (God’s Anointed Teen Event). G.A.T.E provides community teens a safe place to hang out during a Friday night as a safe alternative during a time most would spend on the streets.

The purpose of the Youth Center is to provide a safe, well-rounded, and nurturing environment for the health and wellbeing of our kids and their families. Local ministries join us in hosting faith-filled devotions, coping skills, book clubs, and indoor and outdoor fun activities to foster personal growth in self-esteem, community service, and hope. Each weeknight, the youth and their families can eat dinner for free at the Mission. 

Academic support, such as tutoring, GPA checks, and school advocacy is provided. The Youth Center also provides snacks, school supplies, hygiene kits, clothes, and shoes.

Resources for employment, scholarships, housing, counseling, activities, and more are also provided through various local partnerships, such as 10k with a Cop, Youth for Christ, Americans Veteran’s First, Beyond the Walls, Civil Air Patrol Squadron 50, and more!  The Mission believes in offering as much support as possible to ensure our youth have all they need to be successful at home, in school, and in their future.
