COVID-19 Current Information

Since 1889, The Market Street Mission has been all about changing lives.  We are committed to serving the homeless, hungry and addicted so health and safety are a top priority for our guests, residents, volunteers and staff.  We are urging everyone to follow established guidelines; including frequent hand-washing, daily temperature checks, and masks as an option when social distancing isn’t possible.  If you have been in contact with someone experiencing COVID symptoms or are experiencing symptoms yourself we ask that you refrain from entering the building.

We’re very appreciative of the hundreds of volunteers who serve each year. As mandates are lifted we urge volunteers to stay connected for assignments that are vital to our operation by contacting Volunteer & Events Manager, Debbie McKenna, at
