Providing food and shelter for men, women and children. We began in 1996 as a church and men’s homeless shelter in Montgomery County, Alabama. Pastor Vince Rosato and his wife Mary founded and operated the shelter until their retirement. Over the years, Friendship Mission has grown. The men’s shelter and church eventually moved into Montgomery’s city limits and a separate shelter location opened under the same name for women in need with or without children. Today, Friendship Mission, Inc. is comprised of two HUD-approved emergency shelters and a public soup kitchen. The Mission’s program works to help those in need build a personal plan to self-sufficiency and independent living.
