About Us

Contact Ministries is a Faith-Based, Human and Social Service Organization with a deliberate mission to provide free on-site program services and community resources to poverty level families and individuals to increase their economic self-sufficiency and reduce their dependency on public assistance. In addition, we offer an Emergency Shelter to single women and women with children of all ages. This is a short-term emergency/crisis shelter that provides a safe place to sleep, an evening meal and a place to take a shower and do laundry with assistance in developing a long-term plan. We also have our Transitional shelter for women with children. This is an aggressive 6 month program focused on establishing future stability and self-sufficiency. The Transitional Shelter is open and staffed 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. If you are not willing to help change your life for the better, then we are not the shelter for you.

Contact Ministries is often the point of initial contact with other community human service organizations. This is an important position in that the agency can rapidly identify and respond to recognized problems and make appropriate decisions with assistance.

Our Vision:  Meeting basic needs while impacting lives for Christ.

Our Mission Statement:
To daily serve the greater Springfield community by providing Emergency and Transitional Shelter with life skills and training, as well as food, clothing, financial assistance and referrals through Christ’s love and compassion.
