God in Christ, with Man Dwelling

...Making Christ Visible

Homelessness is the most pressing issue of the 21st Century-rural homelessness even more so, because it is largely unseen.  But as the Scripture tells us, "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction..." (James 1:27a)

Through the acts of mercy that we do for others, we find ourselves more conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ.


For over 18 years this phrase has been the controlling vision for Emmanuel Mission.  We want every person who comes to us to be able to see Christ making his dwelling with them, especially in their most desperate times.


Emmanuel Mission serves a five county area in Northeastern Michigan.  We are an Emergency Homeless Shelter, offering those without adequite housing a place to sleep and an address to use for up to 90 days.  During this time we assist our guests in locating assistance and making changes that will result in a more stable life.  If you are interested in volunteering or supporting our mission through donations, please contact us by clicking the button below.  Emmanuel Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
