Welcome To Mountain of Faith Ministries
Mountain of Faith is a nonprofit 501(c)3 faith-based organization founded and operating in Vicksburg, Mississippi since November 2002.
Our initial goal is to bring homeless individuals and families into our program and deliver them from emergency homelessness. The ultimate goal is to guide residents to transitional living and finally to permanent housing. We aim to provide an environment which assists the homeless individual and families become self- supportive, self-reliant and in a position to make a self-determination. Our outreach program referrals on occasion have brought the homeless from situations not meant for human habitation.
Our partnership with the Police and Sheriff's Departments enables us to screen residents before they enter the 30-day emergency shelter program. We utilize support services offered by local agencies including Vicksburg Family Development, Warren Yazoo Mental Health, Salvation Army and the American Red Cross. The local free clinics provide medical services to our Shelter residents. We network with landlords or public housing authorities and private housing facilities to transition families into permanent housing.
