Hope for the hurting...

Reaching the poor with the love and the power of the gospel...

November of 2020 Valley Mission purchased the old Metro Gym.
This will be the new home of Valley Mission very soon, which will house the Food Pantry, a new laundromat, an emergency shelter, dining and kitchen area, office space for Valley, a new Transformational Living Program (fall/winter 2022), office space for local agencies and 4 apartment rentals.

We are so excited and blessed to be in this position to help those in our community who desire a fresh start, and look forward to the partnership within this amazing community with other agencies and support!
FOOD PANTRY DISTRIBUTION HOURS - THURSDAYS FROM 3:30 pm UNTIL 6:00 pm
 First Baptist Church, 408 N Arthur Avenue.
We will limit the number of boxes to pick up at one visit to 3. We simply do not have the volunteers to assist with multiple carry-outs at this time.
If you are a  licensed care giver, please contact us to discuss how to receive food for your clients.

 Our team, ALL VOLUNTEERS, is here to help you get the food you need. They are here because they care, and want to show Jesus' love by serving in this way.
If you have concerns, please direct them to Karl at 208-232-6305 or karl@fbcpoky.com and he will be more than happy to assist you.
2 Fun Nights to Help Raise Funds for Valley Mission!
Mark your calendars to come out and support Valley Mission.
Monday, JULY 15th, Valley Mission Night at Gray's Baseball!
We'll have a booth set up and will be selling 50/50 raffle tickets for Valley Mission. The winner gets half the pot and the rest goes to Valley Mission. A great way to get out and meet folks, enjoy a game and support Valley Mission all at the same time!

Dine To Donate at Texas Roadhouse JULY 22
From 4pm until 10 pm, 10% of all sales, with the coupon, will go toward Valley Mission! We will have out table set up at the restaurant during this even so folks can ask questions, get information and maybe even give a little extra toward our mission. Another great opportunity to get the word out other people about who we are what we are going to be doing once we get our building open.
Hope to see you at one or both of these events!
STREET REACH and Mobile Access Partnerships!

Street Reach is a ministry to the homeless community in Pocatello being offered by Valley Mission. Teams go out to the encampments with supplies and other resources, inviting them to connect with Valley Mission and other agencies who can render the aid they need. This is done weekly and is producing incrdedible results.
Beginning in JUNE, Mobile Access Partnerships begin where Valley Mission and several other partner agencies are at one location offering aid, supplies, resources and more. In due time, there will also be an opportunity to offer showers on site to those who would like one.

These teams are by selection and must be vetted through the Valley Mission Team. If you are interested, please click on the Get Involved tab above and fill out the form. Jessica and her team will get back to you as quickly as possible.
GREAT THINGS GOING ON - Even though the building is still being built! What a great GOD!
Valley Mission Minute!
Construction is moving FAST! Almost too fast...
Walls are going up while we wait for the fire sprinkler connection ($50,000) to happen. Shelter, offices, kitchen space, upstairs office area are all framed in and plumbing is in those areas as well. As of July 2nd, the electricians startd putting in boxes inside to mark both electrical and data. WOW!

We are in the process of getting the main electric panel installed so Idaho Power can come in and get our new power connected at our new pole ($30,000!) Once that gets done, the real work of running wires, making connections begins to happen.

We have received a gift of $25,000 toward the sprinkler project this week so that has been a blessing! If you would like to know about where and how to give, please reach out to us and we will get you the information you need.

A whole person approach to re-engagement...

We are all broken. We all need healing. We all need relationship.
Loving people who are poor and homeless means wanting the best for them – not mere survival but meaningful, purposeful lives.

Join Valley Mission as we affirm each person and offer a pathway to a different way of life.
You can be part of the solution that enables people to re-engage in community, to be an active, participating and contributing member of this amazing valley!
  1. Treat them with dignity. Make eye contact. Smile. Through civil conversation, you can help homeless individuals combat the loneliness, depression  and isolation many of them face.
  2. Give them food/supplies. Carry a Blessing Bag with granola or energy bars, water, etc. If the person's sign says they'r hungry and you have the time, buy them a sandwich and a beverage.
  3. Direct them to places of assistance. Aid for Friends of 4th street has services available throughout the day.
