We help people experiencing homelessness get off the streets through an all mobile, person-centered, and solution-first approach.
On any given night 567,715 people experience homelessness in America. We're committed to seeing that decrease through a unique, mobile-first approach that ensures that our homeless friends get the personalized care and resources that they need and deserve.
We are compelled by the example of Jesus. His profound story of the Good Samaritan sets the model for our values and behaviors.
The central value to Metro Relief is our desire to move toward people, wherever they may be. We seek out our friends on the street with the sincere desire to see them and hear them.
It's all about the individual on the street. How can we find a pathway for them specifically? Where should they be and how can we help?
Once assessing the needs of the individual, Metro is relentless in finding a pathway of answers and solutions for each person.
Alongside local specialist partners in areas of diversion, addiction remedy, temporary housing, immigration services, etc. Metro is committed to a full team approach.
It is our desire to reproduce Metro's unique set of values to all corners of the United States and around the globe. We constantly think about growth.

Our three pillars
We focus our attention on three primary outreach ministries, providing the mechanism by which we are able to help those suffering homelessness toward a sustainable recovery.
Mobile Resource Bus
Every week our staff and volunteers take our buses to homeless hotspots to provide food, hygiene kits, clothing, and prayer to our friends. This creates open doors for our case managers to begin one-on-one care to help get people off the street and into housing.Learn More...
Daily Street Outreach
Our case managers are constantly on the move searching for people experiencing homelessness. By partnering with local law enforcement and municipalities, we're able to quickly find people living on the streets, replace critical documents, and connect them with resources.Meet our Metro Team...
