Rescue, Recovery, Renewal Campaign
Gospel missions have existed prior to and since Jesus Christ told his disciples to feed the hungry and to shelter the homeless. Klamath Falls Gospel Mission has been serving the vulnerable hungry, homeless and at-risk citizens of Klamath County since 1958. That is more than 50 years of meeting the most basic of human needs. No other entity in the Basin has served over eight million nourishing meals or provided more than two million warm beds for men, women and children in our hometown.
My name is Alan and I came to the Gospel Mission last year. My life had been messed up for several years due to many problems and bad decisions. These included drug addiction, bad relationships, loss of marriage and kids, unable to keep a job, and a lack of God in my life.
I actually was off of drugs when I came to the Mission and had been sober for several years. That came about by hitchhiking around the country and examining my life, but I still didn’t have God. I came to Klamath to be closer to my adult son and came to stay at the Mission, and ended up in the Recovery Program through a desire to know more about God.
Latisia arrived at the Klamath Falls Gospel Mission seeking shelter in August 2014. She was 29 and had been living at Turtle Cove-Marta’s House. Due to a history of drug use, Latisia needed a place to stay while she waited for a place to open up for her at Transformational Wellness Center, a local A&D residential treatment facility.
Latisia successfully ﬁnished her 90 days of residential treatment and wanted to return to the KFGM to begin building back and moving forward with the rest of her life. She wanted to be some place where she could be strengthened in her Christian faith as the primary basis for her recovery and renewal.
