Friendship Mission able to move forward with new project

Since 2004, when we obtained the property on Spur Highway that is now known as Friendship Mission, thousands of hours have been volunteered to make the building what it is today. A place where men who are in need, through bad choices or unforeseen circumstances beyond their control, can get help. Some have been laid off from their jobs or have just been released from the prison system. Whatever the situation, these men have needed help.
