Number who Received Emergency Assistance in 2023

Mission Arlington’s “Front Room” is open from 8-5 Monday-Friday and 9-2 on Saturday. Appointments are not necessary, and there isn’t anything to fill out in advance. Come in when you can, and let’s see how we can help.

The need in our community has been increasing over the last year.

More and more, ordinary people are finding themselves needing a little help to get by.  We are so grateful for the privilege we have of serving in this place, alongside each of you, who give so much to help people in need.

Here are some statistics from our “Emergency Assistance” arena in 2023:

  1. 195,972 people received food, clothes, household items, and furniture in 2023.
  2. This represents 56,584 families
  3. 655 people a day came through our front doors for help.
  4. This number represents a 16 percent increase in the number of people needing help compared to 2022.

By God’s Grace & With Your Support

We are grateful to the Lord for His provision. We know that “every good gift comes from above” (James 1:17), and that he “gives us each day our daily bread.”

We also know that our community stands beautifully behind and with us, as we serve.  You drop by six days a week, from early to late, thinking about the people.  As people drive away, we often hear, “I hope someone can use what I brought.”  There is a tenderness in this community which is truly beautiful, and we get to see that heart every day – as you drop by with clothes, food, household items, and/or a check – all to help someone else.

We are truly honored by the opportunity we have been given to serve alongside you.
