A Day at the Mission

The Los Angeles Mission is looking to give people a very real experience in the downtown area of Los Angeles. Just as the 24HHLN (24 Hours of Homelessness) program does, the Day at the Mission program, (groups of 8-25 people) seeks to offer an equally impacting microcosm of that program. The Day at the Mission, in a four-hour period will allow people to see the Los Angeles Mission from the inside out. It is our intention to enlighten people to how this ministry truly speaks to those who are struggling with a myriad of problems. Those who come will see the inner workings and get a “behind the scenes” look at what it takes to make a Rescue Mission function. The Day at the Mission will allow people volunteer experience in a number of ways which include food service, event preparation, to guest services among others. It will also allow people to see the real “Skid Row” from Wall Street to San Pedro Street and much more. People will get a live walking tour of downtown that will surely open their eyes to the reality of what people deal with each and every day.

If you have a group between 8 and up to 15 people please don’t hesitate to call. The age requirement is 14 years and older. The cost per person including lunch is $45.00.
