Sunrise Mission provides short term (90 day) housing for individuals and families struggling with homelessness.
While at Sunrise Mission, Guests work toward accessing services and locating transitional housing as a pathway to housing stability.
During their time at Sunrise Mission, staff members assist Guests by providing applications from our community partners such as NEMCSA, MSHDA, Alpena Housing Commission, and apartment and housing agencies. In addition our MI Bridges Navigators may be able to help update information, seek identification, and apply for services.
Case Management is mandatory at Sunrise Mission. Our trained staff members help Guests identify needs and locate appropriate service providers. We walk with our Guests and help them move toward their personal goals - including employment, housing independence, or other services.
At Sunrise Mission we gratefully proclaim our salvation through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
We believe that our merciful God has a plan to give His children hope and a future through His Son, Jesus.
We do not require our Guests to share our faith, but offer Christ- centered counseling, groups, and fellowship for those who wish to participate.
Homelessness is not something that just happens to strangers. Those affected may be family, friends, and neighbors. Many things may result in homelessness - the loss of a job, the end of a relationship, domestic violence, or a death of a loved one. .
Very few Americans have the resources to make it through an economic crisis caused by the unexpected loss of a job. In America today it is estimated that as many as 50% of our friends, family, and neighbors are only 2 missed paychecks away from homelessness.
Our God knows the plans He has for us -- plans to give you hope and a future!
