Mission House Endowment
in memory of James Shields
Mission House has been the only answer for those affected by homelessness in the Jacksonville Beaches area for the past 20 years. Mission House needs your support to continue our services to those in need. We want to remain the leading resource at the Beach for years to come.
Mission House has established a $1,000,000 Charitable Endowment Fund with Raymond James*. The Endowment was created to ensure the basic services of showers, meals and general operations are safeguarded into the future. Your gift to the Endowment will support our mission over the long term, especially when economic times are tough. This perpetual and sustaining fund will be vital to the financial stability and strong future of Mission House and ensure institutional permanence.
