The mission of the Veterans Miracle Center is to offer veterans and active-duty military personnel real solutions that will enhance their lives. They provide clothing, personal care and hygiene products, houseware items, ambulatory equipment, toys for their children and much more. The center also provides access to specialists and counselors to assist with personal needs, jobs, housing or financing. All goods and services are available free-of-charge to veterans and their immediate household.

The Capital City Rescue Mission provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner 365 days a year to anyone in need as well as emergency shelter and clothing. They also provide a free medical clinic which provides essential primary care for people who are struggling with poverty or homelessness.
