25 Dec December 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner – Victory Mission – Activities Near Me
Our December 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner is Victory Mission.
Victory Mission began in 1976 when Rev. and Mrs. Everett Cook saw the needs of the homeless in Downtown Springfield. Their initial efforts included the distribution of sandwiches and coffee from the back of their station wagon. Today the Outreach arm of Victory Mission includes a food pantry, evening feeding program, senior luncheon, Thanksgiving/Christmas baskets and back-to-school supplies.
Over the years, the organization has moved beyond outreach to focus on empowerment through intentional programs and emergency shelters. Victory Square provides a safe space for individuals facing homelessness with the help they need to get back on their feet through recovery programs and job training. SingleMomzRock provides resources for single parents and encouragement to a network of women through monthly meetings and occasional special events.
A number of social enterprises help to create employment opportunities for members of Victory Mission + Ministry’s programs. These ventures not only provide hands-on experience and fair living wages for different individuals, but they also allow Victory Mission to become more sustainable as an organization.
