Redwood Gospel Mission

Overviewteamupdatesworkspacecalendarfiles 

Santa Rosa, CA. will be the new location for the Redwood Gospel Mission - a homeless shelter and drug/alcohol rehabilitation program located in Santa Rosa since the early 1960’s. The new facility will allow the mission – currently serving roughly 40 homeless people, 40 people in the rehabilitation program as well as serving about 350 meals a day – to double the amount of people it serves.

We will be creating a new headquarters for an existing men’s homeless shelter, which for the last 50 years has been located in an area of downtown Santa Rosa. This area, called Old Railroad Square is currently undergoing redevelopment and is no longer appropriate for the mission or its clients. The size of the existing facility is no longer adequate for the ever growing homeless population. A new site has been identified which will allow the shelter to double in size. Our goal is to create a new facility that will be a healing supportive environment as well as functional and environmentally sustainable.
