“Faith Based” is the term used to designate any homeless service provider that is associated with a religion.
Fundamentalist Christians are known for operating rescue missions.
Catholics have St Vincent DePaul centers and a variety of services under the name of Ladies of Charity.
The Salvation Army is also a Christian faith based organization.
Those are the largest and most well known organizations, but there are many other faith based homeless service providers. Some of these organizations require the homeless to participate in religious activities in exchange for services, but not all.
