CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread

Without You, Healing Isn't Possible

Every day is a struggle for individuals suffering from mental illnesses and chemical addictions. Your support of CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread provides guidance and structure to homeless clients, assisting them as they develop a plan of action to break the cycles of addiction and despair. For many who are homeless, it is nearly impossible to access mental health services and medication. Your gifts to CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread provided medication and access to psychiatrists via telemedicine to those in need.



CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread takes a holistic approach in pursuing its mission to the homeless—ministering to the needs of the body, mind and spirit of each individual. Staff members and volunteers assist clients in—

  • Confronting the causes of homelessness, addiction and other pertinent disabilities of the mind and body
  • Getting nutritious meals, clean clothing, the necessities of personal hygiene
  • Gaining admission to a structured recovery program.
  • Nurturing hope and creating possibility.
