Here's how we're helping the neediest people of our community:

San Bernardino City Mission conducts mobile outreaches four days a week in various communities around our region.

Mobile Outreach

Four days a week, we partner with local churches to conduct mobile outreaches. This allows us to serve a broader population over a wide area.The local church provides the site and volunteers to set up, serve meals, distribute clothing, and offer counseling. We bring the hot meals and practical items such as toilet paper, soap, and of course, Bibles.We also send guests home with "Bags of Hope" to carry them through their week. 

See how your church can host a mobile outreach.


San Bernardino City Mission bring hot meals to hungry people four days a week.

Community Outreach Meals

For many hungry people, receiving a hot nutritious meal from the Mission is more than a momentary blessing—it's the first step toward a new life. After experiencing the love of Christ in such a practical way, their hearts become open to the life-changing power of the gospel. And for us, that's what it's all about. All the hot meals we serve come direct from our distribution center in Highland, California.

Family Food Box Meals

Many families in our communities don’t have the money to buy food—or even a car to pick it up. So we're bringing the food to them. With the help of our faithful volunteers we deliver more than 75,000 Family Food Box Meals every year to seniors, shut-ins and poor families—each one with at least 25 meals to get them through the lean times.

Help us distribute Family Food Boxes.

Mobile Outreaches

Bags of Hope

When people come to our Mobil Outreach events, they receive hot meals, good fellowship and Biblical instruction—and when they leave they can take a Bag of Hope with them, containing food for ten meals and hygiene supplies such as tooth paste, toilet paper, tissue, toothbrushes and Band-Aids. Last year, 33,782 people received Bags of Hope from the San Bernardino City Mission!


People find clothing they need at San Bernardino City Mission

Household Goods

For those who have nothing, a few simple things can make all the difference: a lamp, a pot to cook in, some decent bedding. We can even provide washers, dryers, beds and automobiles—all through generous donations from our partners.

Help the hurting by donating physical goods.


We want all the people we minister to to come into relationship with Jesus Christ. We help them do that.

Spiritual Help

The life of Christ is at the heart of everything we do. So we don't just meet people's physical needs. We pray with them, counsel them, give them Bibles, and share devotional services with them.

Case Management

People often need help to take advantage of the many programs available to them—and to make good long-term choices. In our case management services we help people identify their problems. Then we help them--especially homeless women with children--develop a plan to get off the streets. They find housing and take the first steps to a new life. We encourage them get on the right track‐ and stay there.

We can refer those needing shelter to services that provide temporary housing.
