Jail Ministry

Elm Street Mission has been helping the homeless and hurting of Santa Cruz since 1972.We are a church with a focus on working with those who are bound by addictions and/or mental illness. We serve a big God who can and will help all those who desire a change in their life and will surrender their lives to Him in repentance. We feed, clothe, and help people to get into programs.

The mission's structure was the former Advent Christian Church, which was built in 1912. In 1976 the Teamsters Union Local 912 was using the building. (Santa Cruz Historic Building Survey, Vol. I, p. 78) In 1974 and 1984 it was the site of the Bible Missionary Church, (Polk 1974, SC Sentinel, July 26, 1984) which became the Elm St. Bible Missionary Church, (1988 White Pages) which in turn became the Elm St. Church in 1989 and the Elm St. Mission in 2004.
