Whosoever Gospel Mission Thrift Shop
The Whosoever Gospel Mission is a Christian nonprofit organization whose purpose is to provide shelter, food, clothing, education, counseling, rehabilitation and other assistance to homeless and/or needy men, women and children in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area. As the lighted sign on our rooftop proclaims each night, we seek to offer the love of Jesus and the hope of the Gospel in both word and deed to those who are hurting. Our thrift shop is an important part of our ministry. In addition to raising much needed funds for our ministry to homeless men, our thrift shop also provides real life workforce development training for the 50 homeless men enrolled in our New Life Rehabilitation and Job Readiness Program. We also use our thrift shop as a ministry in and of itself. Last year, we provided without charge thousands of pieces of good used clothing to over 1,600 needy people with more than half of them being children.
