We, here at Bed Bug Heat Doctor/Prevsol, are so grateful to have the opportunity to work with the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, a Philadelphia based Mission that seeks to bring humanity back to those experiencing homelessness. Through our partnership, we have been working toward eliminating bed bugs at their emergency shelter. With so many people in one place, it is easy for bed bugs to spread rapidly and become an infestation. They have been able to utilize our bed bug heater, all-natural bed bug spray, and mattress encasements to provide a clean atmosphere for their guests. Read more about their Mission and how we have been able to quickly and efficiently help them decrease the presence of bed bugs in their homeless shelter. 

Here is what out friends at Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission have to say:

“Our ongoing vision is to grow in excellence and continue to elevate this Mission to be a 21st Century, 5-star Ministry. What does 5-star Ministry look like? The Ritz-Carlton! The Bible demands that the treatment and care of our guests should be as excellent as a 5-star hotel. In doing so, we honor Jesus Himself with our 5-star service for every person who walks into our doors.

Additionally, 21st Century simply recognizes that the causes and solutions to homelessness have changed since the Mission here in Philadelphia was founded, over 142 years ago, in the 19th Century. How we are called to serve in the 21st Century involves new technology, creative collaborations, and multi-pronged strategies. This includes our partnership with Bed Bug Heat Doctor/Prevsol.  It was essential that we ensure that we did everything possible to limit bed bugs in our 250 bed emergency shelter. Bed Bug Heat Doctor/Prevsol provided us with sprays, mattress covers, and a heating system, which have been invaluable in our fight against the dreaded bed bug.  Over the past six months, we have seen a decrease in the presence of bed bugs. Bed Bug Heat Doctor/Prevsol made this success possible.

To bring people from the streets to a home involves more than just the giving of material things. It is about taking care of the whole human being: the social, emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual aspects. We offer solutions to meet their lack of material things while helping them to repair their broken relationships.

Looks can be deceiving, and every aspect of each human being must be considered – otherwise, we could be doing more harm than good. Many come to the Mission already believing in Jesus as their Savior. So, as we provide homeless services, we are empowering and inspiring our guests to throw off the shame, guilt, fear, and hopelessness that bears a heavy burden upon them. Homelessness is often a lack of what makes a person feel human as God’s creation. Pride, self-esteem, courage, dignity, happiness, these are things that money can’t buy.

We are helping those experiencing homelessness to feel that they are valued, respected, and loved by God and by us. This multi-faceted approach does not simply relieve our guests’ suffering, but it transforms their lives so that they can build a stable future for themselves and find peace at home.”
