"What we do lives and breathes.
It has a heartbeat. It has a passion.
It's an extension of who Jesus Christ is."

– Jackie Davis, Director

We're helping the people of Riverside with a broad range of programs

San Bernardino City Mission conducts mobile outreaches four days a week in various communities around our region.

Mobile Outreach

Four days a week, we partner with local churches to conduct mobile outreaches. This allows us to serve a broader population over a wide area.The local church provides the site and volunteers to set up, tear down, serve meals, distribute clothing, and offer counseling. We bring the hot meals and practical items such as toilet paper, soap, and of course, Bibles. And we send our guests home with "Bags of Hope" to help them get through their week.

San Bernardino City Mission distributes family food boxes to those who get outside easily.

Family Food Box Meals

Poor families in Riverside often don’t have the money to buy food, or even a car to pick it up. So we bring the food to them. With the help of our faithful volunteers we deliver Family Food Box Meals directly to their homes, each one with at least 25 meals to get them through the lean times. Last year, with your help, Riverside City Mission provided 117,600 Family Food Box meals to seniors, shut-ins and poor families.

Help us distribute Family Food Boxes.


San Bernardino City Mission bring hot meals to hungry people four days a week.

Community Outreach Meals

For many hungry people, receiving a hot nutritious meal from the Mission is more than a momentary blessing—it's the first step toward a new life. After experiencing the love of Christ in such a practical way, their hearts become open to the life-changing power of the gospel. And for us, that's what it's all about. All the hot meals we serve come direct from our distribution center in Highland, California.

Help us provide hot meals for hungry people.


San Bernardino City Mission distributes Bags of Hope to people who come to our Mobile Outreaches

Bags of Hope

When people come to our Mobil Outreach events, they receive hot meals, good fellowship and Biblical instruction—and when they leave they can take a Bag of Hope with them, containing food, sundries and hygiene supplies to sustain them through the week.


People find clothing they need at San Bernardino City Mission

Household good and clothing

For those who have little, a few simple things can make all the difference: a bed, a pot to cook in, a toaster, a washer and dryer. We're able to provide these things, and other low-cost items for low-income families, through the generous donations of our partners.


Help the hurting by donating physical goods.


We want all the people we minister to to come into relationship with Jesus Christ. We help them do that.

Spiritual Help

The life of Christ is at the heart of everything we do. So we don't just meet people's physical needs. We pray with them, counsel them, give them Bibles, and share devotional services with them. For those with more extensive needs, we have a network of specialized ministries we can refer them to.

We can refer those who need shelter to services that provide temporary housing.
