Klamath Falls Gospel Mission assistance programs.
The main resources from the Klamath Falls Gospel Mission range from short term shelter for men and women to hot meals, temporary assistance, and more. The faith based charity organization focuses on the most vulnerable in the community. So the clients can include the homeless, poor, and even women or children escaping domestic violence.
Klamath Falls Gospel Mission Food and Clothing Programs can help eliminate hunger in the county as well as provide non-monetary assistance for needy households. The charity uses donations to provide support to the hungry, people seeking clothing for work or school, and more.
In an crisis, the agency can provide emergency and short-term food assistance. Or they will help provide household supplies and other critical items. The programs are for income-eligible individuals and families, and contact the intake line for more information.
When it comes to clothes as well as material aid, this is where TAP (Temporary Assistance Program (T.A.P.)) comes into play. There can be support given for up to 6 months in some cases, but it will generally last for at most 30 days. Various conditions are in place as well.
- Free furniture is only given to low income families with a rental agreement. Learn more
- Klamath County DHS needs to approve any clothes, school supplies, or winter attire for kids.
- Identification and proof of hardship is needed as well.
The soup kitchen serves hot meals 3 times per day, with some limited weekend service too. The Klamath Falls Gospel Mission will not only feed shelter guests, but other hungry people from the county can drop in. Many volunteers hep service and prepare the meals, and businesses and/or stores often donate surplus food to the program.
Klamath Falls Gospel Mission supports homeless men. Those that arrive at the shelter can get given help, on a daily basis. As accommodations and resources allow, the charity will give people a hot meal. They will also be able to get a bed in the shelter (if there is room) and this will enroll them into the Overnight Guest program.
Space is very limited. Therefore the beds are reserved through a daily intake process. Offering a place to sleep is obviously a very short term solution. Therefore the charity will offer clients a number of wrap-around services, case management and programs to help them achieve independence. No matter the religion, the men who use the Klamath Falls Gospel Mission shelter are also encouraged to enroll in Men’s Ministry programs.
Up to a dozen women as well as children can also use an emergency shelter. Similar to above in not only will a bed be offered, but the client is also given basic assistance. This may range from meals to clothes, hygiene items, use of showers, and much more.
Basic Advocacy Services: Case workers from Klamath Falls Gospel Mission sit down with a client to decide upon their needs. If and when needed, an intervention is held, and support is given to them on a case-by-case basis. The staff will be advocates for individuals to ensure that each person is made aware of all of the internal resources as well as external assistance programs. The team will then go over the process to ensure people receive the aid to which she is entitled. What is given to each and every person will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Other social services and support can be arranged too. The main shelter and Klamath Falls Gospel Mission resource center is at, 823 Walnut Avenue, Klamath Falls, Oregon 97601, dial 541.882.4895. The shelter space is of course very limited.
