About Mission: Possible - Renew, Restore, Revitalize

With community support, your Watertown Urban Mission is a place where your neighbors who struggle to rise above life’s challenges can come for help with basic needs – food, drink, clothing, acceptance, shelter, prescription and medical transportation costs, addiction and more. Through the generosity of this community, these services are intended to lift people out of their struggle with the utmost dignity and respect.

Your Mission was founded in 1968, but in 2004, for the first time, the programs that help people each and every day found a home together in the former Empsall Buick and Halley Electric building. This building is in an ideal location and has the space needed to help more people than it ever had before. In fact, your Mission helped your neighbors in need more than 35,000 times in 2012 from this facility.

Still, the right building in the right location needs significant improvements to be safer, more efficient and better suited to serve your neighbors.  To accomplish this, your Mission has embarked on its first capital campaign in its 45-year history to raise the funds needed to improve work spaces, put in handicap accessible entrances and bathrooms, remove and replace dangerous or inefficient electrical and heating systems, reduce energy costs, renovate the thrift store for increased profitability and set in place an endowment for long term sustainability, all without changing the character of an organization whose staff and supporters seek to improve lives with the utmost dignity and respect. With your help, this campaign will be successful and give this organization the resources it needs to continue strengthening your community.
