A look at a man before and after his life transformation from homelessness.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator […]” -Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence
The Oliver Gospel Mission looks at the broken and homeless who arrive at our doors as having potential to make a positive influence on others, the ability to penetrate the community, and make a dynamic difference. Our perspective on the homeless differs from most preconceived notions in our society.
Society views the homeless population as a problem. Oliver Gospel Mission sees potential in every man who walks through our doors.
Society wants to remove them, while Oliver Gospel Mission wants to rebuild them.
Society tends to enable the homeless, but Oliver Gospel Mission wants to equip them.
Society gives freely to the homeless, while Oliver Gospel Mission frees them to give to others.
Society wants to change them, but Oliver Gospel Mission teaches transformation from within.
Society often views homeless people as an aggravation, but Oliver Gospel Mission sees the potential of each person to become an enhancement to the community.
