About MFHM

My Father’s House Mission (MFHM – homeless shelter) is in the middle of upgrading safety features at their Springfield facility on 10th Ave E.  MAP but they have received temporary authorization from the State Fire Marshal’s Office to open as an “Emergency Cold Weather Shelter” due to the current extreme cold weather conditions.

The location of the Shelter is 101 10th Ave E, Springfield, TN MAP, and is directly behind Southside Drugstore. The Shelter has separate sleeping areas for men and women. Sorry, no pets are allowed.

MFHM is a non-profit organization that utilizes volunteers and donations to operate. If you can assist in donating any of the following, it would be appreciated:

Food for a light breakfast (something that can be heated in a microwave, cereal, fruit, pastries, juice, milk, etc.)
Food for a light lunch (lunch meat, bread, cheese, soup, chili, hot dogs, condiments, etc.)

Prepare a hot dinner, bring it to the Shelter and if you can stay to assist in serving the guests, that would be appreciated.

We are anticipating 10-12 of our displaced population each night. If you volunteer to bring a hot dinner, you can call the Shelter at (615) 992-1547 and MFHM will provide you with the number they are currently feeding each night. In addition, if you can volunteer your time, whether it is for 3 hours or overnight, please call the number above and inquire as to the current need for volunteers. If you have never volunteered at the Shelter, when possible, you will be paired up with an experienced volunteer to provide you on-the-job-training.

We need volunteers in the following positions:

Prepare an evening meal and deliver to the Shelter by 5:45 pm.
Provide a devotional after the evening meal, 10-15 minutes in length.

Perform fire watch duties for a three-hour window (walk the bldg.. every 30 minutes to ensure that no fires or fire hazards exist)
Serve as a chaperone. We require at least two chaperones at all times, preferably one male and one female.

MFHM is proud to be the hands and feet of Christ in our community.
