USA Ministry

Our ministry to the homeless is multi-faceted and includes working directly with the homeless, helping new ministries get started, and assisting churches in reaching the homeless population in their own cities.

Resource Clinics

Our Resource Clinics are one-day events that we put on to truly bring hope and help to the homeless. The events usually last from 4-6 hours and during that time our team and volunteers work hard to provide critical resources that people experiencing homelessness need. We also serve a meal and have a lot of fellowship right out on the streets where people live!

Ministry Helps

We assist local churches in all areas of ministering to the homeless. We have helped start new outreach ministries, consulted with shelters and missions, trained workers and much more. Most of these things are done by Travis Sharpe. He readily shares what he has learned from many years of homeless ministry in the United States.
