SPREAD SOME CHRISTMAS JOY
BAY AREA RESCUE MISSION
On Christmas Day we host a party with Santa at the Bay Area Rescue Mission (BARM). We bring gifts for all the women and children staying at the mission. To make gift giving easier this year, BARM has created an Amazon wish list. Please check it out. You’ll notice most items are therapeutic toys and equipment. These items are being requested to address the needs of kids at the shelter.
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of volunteers who have been affected by addiction one way or another. We have a heart for the most desolate people in our communities who are deep in addiction. We like to invite addicts into a healthy community and offer emotional and spiritual support through visits, prayers and social events.
SUBSTANCE ABUSE CRISIS
A 2023 survey by the United States Conference of Mayors asked 117 cities for their top three causes of homelessness. Substance abuse was the single largest cause of homelessness for single adults (reported by 85% of cities).
According to recent studies, two-thirds of homeless people report that drugs or alcohol were a major reason for their becoming homeless. Statistics like these are the reason why Project 180 exists.
WHAT WE DO
We like to bring addicts into a healthy community and offer emotional and spiritual support through visits, prayers and social events. We do monthly outreaches in San Francisco where we offer food and clothing. We try to find people who want a way out of their addiction and get them into detox centers and connect them to recovery centers. Our Project 180 Houses provide a sober-living, faith-based, environment for those who have completed a recovery program.
ARE YOU IN RECOVERY AND
NEED A SAFE PLACE
The PROJECT 180 House is a transitional home for men who have completed their recovery program. This is a safe place where men who have overcome their addiction can come and learn how to live successfully in recovery.
Project 180 Ministries is strictly organized by volunteers and sponsors. Your donation helps us run our outreach programs and maintain our costs to transport those who are willing to get into recovery programs and treatments centers.
We are always looking to network with different organizations and individuals. If you would like to volunteer, donate or simply get to know about what we do, we would love to chat!
