Homelessness doesn't take a vacation

Children need time to be Children

Children should be outside enjoying the sunshine. They shouldn't be cooped up inside babysitting their younger brothers or sisters. Or even worse, worrying what's for dinner because the kitchen pantry is practically bare.

Whether it's the weekend, spring or summer break, the children at Metropolitan Ministries will not have worry about their next meal.

Children need time to be children. And that's what they get to do when their families live here.

Give them a summer full of HOPE!

With your help, we are able to nourish their bodies with three meals a day but we also nourish their spirit with our programs that address trauma, educational gaps and much more!
