A Warm Bed & Safe Place
In December 2017, Turlock Gospel Mission moved from the Winter Relief rotating shelter it has operated for the last 5 years to its year-round permanent shelter location at 437 S. Broadway Ave in Turlock. This facility serves as both an emergency shelter and a Restorative Programming space.
Emergency Overnight Shelter
The Emergency Overnight Shelter is open 365 days per year and is open to women, men, and their children on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign-in begins at 4:15 pm daily. Guests join us for a dinner meal at the Restoration Shelter dining room and are assigned to a bed in our dorm, where they are able to stay until 7:00 am. Showers are available, and bins with personal belongings are secured.
Men and Womens Restoration Program
The Restoration Program is a year-long, life-changing Bible-based program designed to help individuals with recovery, vocational training, and spiritual development. This includes recovery from addiction, domestic violence, childhood abuse, co-dependency, overeating, and more. Lives are transformed through housing, meals, case management, counseling, discipleship, education, job training, and support groups.
