Shepura Men’s Center, the oldest of the Jimmie Hale Mission ministries, was named in honor of the late Leo Shepura, co-director of the Mission for 36 years.
This facility consists of a 160-bed men’s shelter, dining hall, clothing distribution, chapel services, a recovery program, and a learning center for education remediation and career readiness. On average, the dining hall serves over 12,000 meals per month.

– Mission donor
