The Volunteer Ministry Center (VMC) offers specialized services to the homeless and those within our community who are in crisis.  VMC’s programs support its two-fold mission of facilitating permanent supportive housing for those who are homeless and providing services to prevent homelessness.

VMC operates four main programs:  The VMC Resource Center, The Bush Family Refuge, Minvilla Manor, and The VMC Dental Clinic.  The goal for all clients is housing.  Utilizing case management and the ‘Housing First’ approach to ending homelessness, VMC assists individuals into permanent, supportive housing and provides the resources necessary to maintain housing.  Once housing is achieved, the case management relationship continues until a level of self-sufficiency is reached, thus ensuring success.
