Niagara Gospel Mission, 1317 Portage Road in Niagara Falls, has had a huge impact on the people of Niagara Falls, and wants to thank the community for making it possible.
“When people tell me about the good work we are doing here, I remind them that they are actually doing the work through us. I thank everyone for their support,” said John Cooper Jr., the mission’s director of development.
In 2022, Niagara Gospel Mission served 13,803 nutritious meals, served 3,415 unduplicated individuals and family members, provided 29,330 nights of shelter, and served 2,500 meals to the community through the “Feed the Falls” event. Twenty-five men obtained housing, while 100 of the men at the Niagara Gospel Mission found employment.
“Everywhere you go, you see a ‘Help Wanted’ sign. We encourage our men once they are able to go out and work. I couldn’t be prouder of what they have done,” said Tom McLaughlin, the agency’s executive director.
A press release stated, “Niagara Gospel Mission is a Christian organization, and spiritual recovery is the core of its ministry. There were 572 Bible classes in 2022, along with 937 Gospel presentations.”
“When men start recovering spiritually, they make longer and more lasting strides in their addiction recovery, and other problems they may have,” Cooper said.
