HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Some homeless people in Hattiesburg are about to get some extra help from a brand new Christian ministry. 

Project 25 will visit the Field House for the Homeless Saturday to host a cookout.

The organization will also hand out donated clothing, blankets and tents.

It was founded by Hattiesburg firefighter Matt Patterson and his friend Wes DeClement.

Next month, Project 25 will put together apartment and housing starter kits for homeless individuals.
