Finish the Mission Fundraising Event

Join us for an Exclusive Tour of our New Building at our Finish the Mission Fundraising Event!

You’re invited to a behind-the-scenes one-hour tour on Saturday, October 17th, where you can get a first-hand look at our new Voeghtly Street Mission location. You’ll have the opportunity to see what our program, furniture, technology, and appliance needs are and give towards the Capital Campaign. 

The new Mission will house the kitchen, dining room, chapel, and men’s emergency shelter, as well as our very first women and children’s shelter! Your support can help us fulfill our needs with items like kitchen appliances, children’s furniture, new bedding, and general costs to finish the campaign. By donating, you’ll have a hand in making history in Pittsburgh and helping us finish the Mission so that the homeless men, women, and children in our community can come to find hope and healing.

Each tour group will be no larger than 15 people and participants will be required to wear masks. If you would rather participate in the event online, don’t worry! We will have a virtual tour video available for you to watch, as well as the opportunity to give right from home.

Sign up using the link below for a timeslot between 9am and 1pm.
