Mission Possible Impossible during Holiday Season

William Simpson, a homeless man who frequents some of the free meal places on the Downtown Eastside, has this to say in an email about Mission Possible Compassionate Ministries Society which operates out of a storefront on Powell St.:
Mission Possible claims to be a 'relief' mission and sports a sandwich board that also claims they help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, etc. The mission has closed for the past two holiday seasons since USA missionary Brian Postalwaite (sp) has taken the helm.

Hasn't the Xmas/New Year season traditionally been a suicidal time and the most needed time for pastoral care?
