At Mission Central, we empower people.
We empower them by helping their children be successful in school. We empower them by getting them through rough patches by providing them with healthy food and warm clothing, so they can focus on the big picture tasks like securing employment and housing. This is the heart of our mission: to empower people in need to improve their own quality of life.
Mission Central was founded in 1996 when the caring members and staff of First United Methodist Church of Hurst, Texas, were drawn to address the growing needs of families who were at the poverty level in their community. As the needs became greater, other churches and organizations wanted to take part in our work in Hurst, Euless and Bedford. To facilitate work among these many groups, Mission Central became a separate non-profit organization in 2003. Since then, the organization has grown three-fold and has served thousands of families in the Mid-Cities.
The staff and volunteers at Mission Central focus on listening to our neighbors and building programs that respond to their needs in a respectful, compassionate manner. As we continue to grow, we look forward to adding new programs that will continue to help empower the people of Hurst, Euless and Bedford as they journey back to a life of self-sufficiency.
Mission Central is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all contributions to the organization are tax-deductible. Third-party information regarding non-profit organizations, including copies of their IRS 990 forms, is available at www.guidestar.org.
