Our primary focus is meeting the needs of individuals and families in the Brazos Valley needing basic assistance. We do that by operating 4 programs: Homeless & Housing Services, Domestic Violence Services, Youth & Family Services, and Donation and Resale Services. In all of our programs we begin with the premise that we are in the People Business. Our programs serve to help those people who need assistance and those people that want to donate and volunteer. We are people helping people.
Twin City Mission will accomplish its Vision through programs addressing: homelessness; violence and abuse; family conflict; youth in crisis; life skills deficiencies; and poverty.
A community in which all individuals and families have an opportunity for hope, acceptance, and stability, in a safe and caring environment.
We are guided by our Core Values: Compassion, Respect, Integrity, Transparency, and Empowerment.
Join the Mission’s team of volunteers and show compassion, love, and kindness to our neighbors in need.
Like many non-profits, we are unique in that all of our programs were developed to meet existing, identified needs in our community.
Beginning in 1963 with the Bryan City Mission, a men’s homeless shelter aimed at helping provide shelter, meals and clothing to homeless men living on the streets in downtown Bryan.
The Shelter’s name, fondly referred to as The Bridge, officially changed names in 2018 with the retirement of CEO Doug Weedon.
The facility is now known as the Doug Weedon Shelter for Hope, and provides Homeless and Housing services, including the Community Café and Community Closet.
Phoebe’s Home opened in 1979, providing the first available relief for victims of domestic violence and their children in the Brazos Valley. This program added other services for these women and the name changed to Domestic Violence Services to adequately reflect all that they do.
STAR Services were added in 1988. Due to their presence in now 10 counties of the Brazos Valley Region, we renamed the program Youth and Family Services.
We also operate four Resale Stores, all of which serve as donation sites. In October of 2019 we will be adding an on-line store. All the proceeds from these stores support the Doug Weedon Shelter for Hope.
