The Midnight Mission, Charity of the Day
The Midnight Mission (pictured above) is located in the Skid Row area of downtown Los Angeles. A successful business man and minister named Tom Liddecoat started the organization in 1914 when he began serving a midnight meal to the homeless men and women of skid row. Today, The Midnight Mission (MM) continues to help the homeless by providing food, shelter, clothing, personal hygiene needs (shaves, and haircuts), and medical care. 12-step recovery programs are also available as well as job training and placement. Part of their mission is to serve homeless families with empathy and respect without sermonizing. The MM relies almost solely on donations from individuals, and their Project Safe Sleep offers a simple way for donors to help. By supporting the Adopt-A-Bed program you can give the gift of a good nights sleep.
*The Midnight Mission receives the 4 star (highest) rating from the charity rating website.
