to the official website for Carriage Town Ministries! Since 1950, the mission has opened its doors to the hurting and homeless men, women, and children in mid-Michigan.
Our mission is...
to provide help, hope and the Good News to our community through the skills and means of God’s people and the transforming power of Christ’s love.
CTM exists because of caring, compassionate, generous people who give of their time, talents, and treasure to help someone in need. We work with dozens of area churches, service groups, schools, colleges, and families who have a desire to make a difference in the life of someone they may never meet. It's amazing to see the Lord work through our staff, Board, and volunteers to produce changed hearts and lives!
Far more than "just" a shelter, CTM provides vital life training and education. Our clients are given a Personal Success Plan (PSP) that helps them establish not just goals, but also a plan for achieving those goals. Every person we serve has a unique story and unique set of needs. Our prayer is for great change to take place in the hearts and lives of all who come to CTM.
As you tour the website, our hope is that you will feel a desire to connect even further with us. Whether you come for a tour, volunteer to serve, donate, or commit to praying for the ministry, it would be my pleasure to meet you and say "thanks!" for being part of the CTM team!
