About the Mission

Since 1905, the Water Street Mission has been providing rescue and renewal for homeless men, women and children.

We serve the homeless and hungry of Lancaster County, PA with the goal to provide comprehensive support to individuals who find themselves in the traumatic crisis of homelessness. We facilitate life change by providing stable shelter, three meals a day and connecting guests with: behavioral health support through Christian counseling, medical and dental care, and career support services.

The vision for each individual is to guide him or her out of the lifestyle that led to a state of homelessness, and that begins with meeting his or her need for food and shelter. With a Christian worldview based on biblical truths, we are changing one life at a time.
