Empowering people on their journey to self-sufficiency and wholeness.
Mansfield Mission Center is a non-profit organization committed to holistic family development in Mansfield ISD and surrounding areas. We accomplish our mission by:
Meeting immediate food and financial needs while working our clients towards the long-term goal of self-sufficiency.
Each of us has a unique story and our desire is to meet our clients where they are on their own path as we walk together towards a brighter future.
It is our vision to see each person live their fullest possible life, as God intended.
Mansfield Mission Center’s roots started in 1979 at the First United Methodist Church Mansfield. After holding a garage sale, there were still many items remaining. The United Methodist Women opened up a classroom during the week to sell the remaining items, but the inventory just kept growing as people continued to donate items. Eventually, this turned into an impromptu store that used the funds to serve the surrounding community.
Years down the road, the church relocated and several members of the church joined together to build a thrift store. In 2013, the Wesley Mission Center became its own separately incorporated nonprofit and, in 2018, became the Mansfield Mission Center. Our journey continues as we continue to run a thriving thrift store with a new storefront and an adjoining mission center focused on serving the families of Mansfield and beyond.
