Matthew's House Ministry is a faith-based, nonprofit ministry that reaches out to our neighbors in need. We are at 766 Seventh St., centered on the north-west side of Grand Rapids Michigan. Our phone number is 616.233.3006. We are a 501 (c) 3 that meets all requirements for tax deductible donations. 

We are a place of support for individuals and families who have no physical home. We are a helping hand as they work toward greater stability by supporting the mind, body and spirit.

Since Matthew's House Ministries was founded in 2008 by Pastor George Werkema, our mission is to show Christ's love, build relationships, listen with empathy and promote human dignity.  We do this by providing access to showers, laundry facilities, food and shelter while walking alongside our neighbors as they transition to success.

We focus on spiritual growth, education, employment, social and economic functionality by not only providing transitional housing but daily drug and alcohol counseling, daily bible studies, computer skills training, resume building and business incubation services.

We have and will continue to have a major impact on the quality of life of the homeless and welcome all with open arms.
