Children sleeping in shelters. Veterans living on the streets. Seniors going hungry. All around us people are struggling to survive, to afford basic needs, and to live productive, fulfilling lives.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can change it. Together, we can take steps that will make a difference in someone’s life. Together, our small efforts can make a big impact. Together, we can provide the child with a bed of her own, offer the veteran a place to connect, and make sure our neighbors have healthy food.

Every moment counts. Let’s start now.

Welcome. Serve. Empower.


We are For Impact.

Xavier Mission strives for a future where all people, regardless of economic status, are treated with dignity and respect and are given the opportunity to realize their goals.

  • We welcome those who are economically disadvantaged into a supportive community.
  • We serve our guests with dignity, empower them to achieve self-sufficiency, and advocate for social justice.
  • We provide basic needs (food, clothing, shelter) as well as opportunities to achieve stability (life-skills training, mentoring, financial assistance).

Each program provides an opportunity for our guests to take a step towards achieving safety, stability, and self-sufficiency, and together provide a continuum of compassionate care and support.


We run 6 programs and multiple projects year-round.



Life-skills, mentoring, and support for individuals who have experienced trauma.



Safe space for referred guests to stay overnight.
