To share the love of Jesus with the people of Springfield by providing opportunities to meet their spiritual and physical needs.
Several members of the Board attended the Heroes Breakfast sponsored by the American Red Cross on March 25, 2011. Ken and Mary Lynn Mitchell were recognized at the breakfast as workplace heroes for their service at Washington Street Mission in helping to meet the needs of the growing number of homeless people in Springfield. Here Board president Bob Paoni holds the poster of the Mitchells that was displayed at the breakfast. He is flanked by Gordon Fidler who serves as secretary of the Board and by Laura Catherwood who serves as vice-president of the Board. The recognition was deeply appreciated by the Mitchells and accepted on behalf of all the people who contribute in so many ways to the heroic ministry of Washington Street Mission.
