Pat's Story

Pat was homeless and hungry when he arrived in New Castle. He came to the Mission for help and received warm shelter, a hot meal, and any additional care he needed in the Crossroads Emergency Shelter for men. “It is wonderful here. It has been a fantastic experience and I’m extremely thankful,” Pat shares.


The Mission’s Crossroads Shelter provides a safe bed in which to sleep, food, and casework to help men experiencing homelessness get established in the community. The over-all goal of this program is to help men improve their quality of life and become a self-sufficient member of our community.

"This has been a fantastic experience and I'm

extremely thankful. This is such a positve place!" - Pat

Along with receiving daily meals to nourish their bodies, the men are also receiving nourishment for their souls during morning chapel services.  “I really do enjoy the chapel services. I’ve received a lot of emotional support here that I had not expected,” shares Pat. Daily chapel services help hurting men hear about the hope offered through Jesus Christ. It is a time where men can receive the spiritual and emotional support they need.


Pat took advantage of the additional opportunities offered through the Mission’s Marshall Learning Center to help men get back on their feet. “They helped me with figuring out housing and also with job searching. They’ve given me so much support and I’m very grateful. This is such a positive place!”
