Ministerial Association Temporary Shelter (MATS)

Ministerial Association Temporary Shelter (MATS): I would like to to let you know about a local ministry that I just found out about. I found this out because of a customer who came into my work with an upcoming benefit concert at his church. This ministry is called MATS (Ministerial Association Temporary Shelter).

Dr. Gary Brewster, Executive Director shared with me. “We are a self-sufficiency ministry for the homeless started 28 years ago by local churches, pastors and para-church ministries. We bring over 400 individual men, women, and whole families including children into the program per year”
