The Washington City Mission exists to share Christ, to shelter, to heal and to restore the homeless to independent living-without discrimination.  We are committed to our Residents, Staff, Volunteers, Donors and Community in the following ways:

  • Honor God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit in everything we do and that together He becomes the daily source of our strength.
  • Provide the opportunity to develop a vital relationship with Christ as Savior and Lord.
  • Recognize that the Holy Bible is our source of Grace and Truth providing the ethics and principles upon which our mission depends.
  • Recognize that all people are created by and made in the image of God. Therefore, we will strive to always respect a person's intrinsic value by:
    • Responding with Samaritan Care to those who are in crisis and by providing long-term recovery care and support leading to personal growth and stability.
    • Treating both the people who are in need and the people who assist, support and fund the ministry as true friends - people who trust and value our services and who must be satisfied.
    • Creating and maintaining a positive learning environment that encourages: open-minds, individual inquiry, entrepreneurial spirit and constant learning leading to spiritual and temporal growth of people's character, commitment, skills and lives.
    • Acknowledging that people, working in a teaming effort under God's leading, are our most valuable asset.
  • Provide administrative and "friend-raising" standards as well as ministry services that are financially sound and on the leading edge of highest quality and superior value.
  • Demonstrate our Christian ideals by always being a true friend and good neighbor in the multicultural community by:
    • Maintaining an open and inclusive spirit to all through encouraging partnerships with other community agencies and care providers, optimizing scarce resources and eliminating duplicate services.
