Amazon Wish List:

They have created an Amazon Wish List of needs at My Father’s House. You can order and have it shipped directly to them.
Also, they could really use a couple of working computers so that guests can fill out job applications online and also create resumes. If you have a good working computer you would like to donate, please contact them and they can arrange to drop off or pick up.

All volunteers have had their background checked. Most, if not all are Christians and are here to serve God.

“We provide a warm, safe place to sleep and physically and spiritually feed those in need.”

Nightly check-in: 5-8PM, check-out: 7AM. Location: 4635 Hwy 41 N, Springfield (Old Armory Building).

This is not just for the homeless.

Services Provided

All guests at My Father’s House are checked in each night beginning at 5:00 pm. The first night we do run a check on the National Sex Offender’s Registry.

No one on the registry is allowed to stay at the shelter. We also follow all guidelines for COVID-19.

There are people out there who might have inadequate heating; their power or water might have been cut off; they are living out of their car or moving from relative to relative.

Guests are provided a hot meal that is prepared and served by our volunteers. A nightly devotional follows the meals and then the guests are given time to relax or take a shower before preparing for bed.

Guests are awakened at 6:00 a.m. to prepare to leave for the day. Breakfast is prepared and served by our volunteers. Some mornings it may be something that they can carry with them, either hot or cold.

Volunteers are always needed.
