Homeless & Housing Services
Join the Mission’s team of volunteers and show compassion, love, and kindness to our neighbors in need.
The Doug Weedon Shelter for Hope
The Doug Weedon Shelter for Hope is the anchor of the Homeless Services arm of Twin City Mission and was the original focus of the mission at its inception in 1963.
The shelter provides emergency housing for any man, woman or family regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity or religion. Our staff works hard to identify each individual's needs and formulate a plan to get each one into more permanent housing.
Our Shelter staff seeks to restore a person's health (mental and physical), rebuild a sense of dignity and prepare them to meet the challenges that they will face when they leave the shelter.
Our Shelter is there for those who have few options, to provide for the most basic needs; food, shelter, laundry supplies and personal hygiene products.
The Community Closet
provides clothes and/or household items (when available) to individuals and families in the community at no charge to assist them in gaining and/or maintaining self-sufficiency.
The Community Closet is located at 418 N. Bryan Street, at the corner of Bryan and 22nd streets in downtown Bryan. The Closet is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 8:00 am to 11:00 am.
The Community Cafe
Food is a source of comfort; good nutrition contributes to an individual's physical and mental health. We strive to provide the best food services that we can for our Shelter family and anyone in the community in need of a hot meal, Monday thru Friday at 12 noon OR 5:00 pm (community members can eat one meal a day at no cost, either lunch or dinner).
The Community Cafe is located at 410 S Randolph Ave, Bryan, TX 77803.

Provides housing assistance to Veteran families.
