Project Overview

We have 43 shelter beds, 33 for men and 10 for women. The cost for the mission to provide this service to those struggling with poverty and homelessness is $15/night per bed. 

As a 100% privately funded mission, that means we need 1308 monthly One Night sponsors - individuals or families in our community, each willing to give $15/month.  This way, each bed in shelter is underwritten for every night of the year. 

We currently have 1208 monthly partners. We are 92% funded for the year.  We need 100 more families willing to give $15/month (or a one time gift of $180 for the year) to get this shelter service fully supported.

About Watered Gardens

Watered Gardens Gospel Rescue Mission

Watered Gardens provides shelter, work and educational opportunities for the poor and homeless in Joplin, MO and its surrounding area. The shelter portion of this mission - a prominent entry point for those in need - is comprised of 40 total beds in two shelter spaces – one for men and one for women. This means that every year, Watered Gardens provides approximately 14,600 total nights of shelter, and sponsorship of these nights is provided from gifts given by individuals, organizations and foundations.

 

One bed, for one night, costs about $15, which provides the following: a shelter bed, shower, meals, hygiene items, set of clothing/shoes, access to laundry facilities, partnership opportunities to earn needed items, goal setting, life skills, mentoring and a comprehensive life renewal program. From just one night, often a life is rescued and embarks on dramatic change.
