Peoples City Mission Is Overflowing With Homeless Getting Out of the Cold

Our recent blast of frigid temperatures are resulting in record numbers at the Peoples City Mission in Lincoln.

Executive Director Pastor Tom Barber tells KLIN News that he believes this is the busiest time they’ve ever had in the history of the Mission.

Pastor Tom says that the mission recently has been housing over 400 homeless when it was originally built to house 250 homeless.

Pastor Tom says there are a lot of ways people can help including by donating warm clothing or money…and volunteering to help at the mission.

Pastor Tom says that Lincoln is very shelter poor right now and will eventually need more shelters.
