Welcome to the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission

Thank you for visiting!

Since 1963, the Reno-Sparks Gospel Mission has served the homeless, hurting, abused and addicted in Northern Nevada.

In 2013 alone, we served more than 400,000 hot meals. Provided 50,000 shelter beds to keep men, women and children off the streets. Gave away 75,000 pieces of clothing.

And changed the lives of hundreds of addicts and their families.

Every day, our area’s hurting look to us for help.

Your support helps us be there for them in their time of need.

Thank you.

Rick Redding, M.A.
Executive Director
