Mission of Love helps people in urgent need; they are living at or below 150% of the federal poverty level, are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of becoming homeless. For many, there is simply no other means of access to food, clothing, laundry, rental and utility assistance, furniture, computers, or referrals for primary, dental, and mental health care. A new priority is a program for people who lost their jobs during or because of the pandemic. Classes include basic job skills, computer and language skills, a class on coding, and classes leading to certification as a nursing assistant or OSHA construction inspector. Students who complete the courses have little or no trouble finding a job but demand has outstripped capacity. The Mission cultivates community partners in all of its work as it provides, trains, and advocates for its community.
