Mission Statement

To provide affordable housing and support services to adults in need with Christ-like love.

About Paxton Ministries

Since 1981, Paxton Ministries has served adults challenged with poverty, mental illness, and intellectual disabilities. We maintain a large personal care home and three smaller residential programs with a total capacity of just over 100 people. These homes provide a critical safety net for individuals who would otherwise have a difficult time finding a safe, clean, and supportive place to live.

At Paxton Ministries, we work hard to create a warm and accepting home that actively looks for ways to acknowledge the dignity and uniqueness of each individual, regardless of his or her disabilities. At Paxton Street Home, our licensed personal care facility, we offer each of our 85 residents a private, fully-furnished room, assistance with managing medications, three meals a day, and plenty of engaging activities. In our Hudson Street Apartments and our two Lodges, our residents are offered a family-like, peer-supported environment that encourages independence and recovery.

We care for the whole person and help our residents access resources and develop the life skills that will allow each one to flourish and live as independently as possible.
