Jackie Davis

Jackie Davis, Director

Since she was very young, Jackie’s passion has been to take care of the needy—to teach them, give them tools to better their lives, and introduce them to Jesus Christ. So she was thrilled to help found the San Bernardino City Mission in 1998, where needy people could receive a hot meal, a safe place to rest, a warm blanket, a pair of shoes and a bit of dignity.

Before that, Jackie worked with the San Diego Rescue Mission, Orange County Rescue Mission, and San Fernando Rescue Mission. She moved furniture, cleaned restrooms, led Bible Studies, bandaged wounded men, drove BIG trucks, and held lonely seniors as they cried. She was grateful for the woman who gave $5,000—and got really excited when a child sold his toys at a yard sale to raise $10 for the hungry. It’s all part of helping the helpless. And that's where Jackie’s heart is.

 

Barbara DuBois

Barbara DuBois, Assistant Director

Barbara has been with the City Mission from the beginning and oversees its day-to-day operations. She was raised in church and accepted Jesus as her savior while still a child. Before coming to the Mission, Barbara worked in the retail industry, including a stint at the Veteran’s Thrift Store. In all her roles, she has served God by praying with people and helping them with their practical needs. Barbara attended Chaffee College and California State Polytechnic University in Pomona.
