Men's Ministry

The Men's Ministry is committed to offering dignity and hope to all who come through the doors of The Scott Mission, serving them with the love and compassion of Christ. 

We help thousands of men in our community every year who come from various backgrounds and are homeless and needy.

Through the grace of God, we are able to provide for their spiritual, emotional and physical needs.
