Instilling Hope; Empowering Lives
Welcome to Community Rescue Mission

Community Rescue Mission is a not-for-profit, faith-based organization that provides safe shelter, meals, and needed support to help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  When people come to our door, most are broken and in crisis with no place to call home.  Imagine how you would feel if you did not know where you would lay your head tonight nor from where your next meal would come.  Multiply those concerns several times over if you had children in tow.  Whatever the circumstance, we are here to instill hope and empower lives while offering Christ-like hospitality and care.

How do People Become Homeless?
• Poverty from a lack of jobs at competitive living wages
• Disparity between housing costs and minimum wage, public supports, or earned benefits
• Lack of affordable transportation
• Lack of affordable housing and inadequate housing assistance
• Lack of affordable health care
• Domestic Violence
• Inadequate support for mental health and substance use challenges

My Story
"The Mission is a safe-haven to cope with all of my problems and transform them with solutions; and better myself as a mom.  The staff treats us with respect, not as infreiors.  I never feel 'talked at' or 'talked down to.'  The Mission is not just a place to sleep, eat, and shower.  It is helping me step up the ladder, instead of shaking it while I climb!" TD resident, age 29

The lives of children and families are further devastated when Mom nor Dad cannot find a job.  In a climate where unemployment rates are high, the number of children and families who are homeless increases.
That is where Community Rescue Mission comes in;  our focus is to provide safe shelter and meals for children and families who are temporarily homeless. We keep the children active and in school during this family crisis, while we enable families get back on their feet as quickly as possible.

We need your financial support to enable us to never turn any family away because of limited resources to provide for them.  There are many worthy causes in our community, but when you make a gift to Community Rescue Mission, you can be confident it is widely used toward your intended purpose.
