The original Stewpot is located across the street from the Central Urban Ministry Center on West Capitol Street. Meals were served in this converted service station from Stewpot’s opening in 1981 until 1992 when the Presbytery of Mississippi offered the use of the Central Presbyterian Church building. This facility now serves as Stewpot’s Clothing Closet.
Sims House, also on Stewpot’s main campus, is a transitional shelter for women and their children. Women can stay at Sims House for three months and during that time they must get a job, participate in counseling and secure permanent housing. This facility houses up to 24 women and children.

The Opportunity Center is located at 845 Amite Street . It is a safe, clean place for homeless and disadvantaged men and women to come during the day and offers access to a variety of resources. Clients are able to shower and do their laundry, utilize our computer lab, and get assistance in finding shelter, rehab, mental health care and employment. After briefly closing our doors because of a lack of funds, the “OC” is back up and running.
