Instilling Hope; Empowering Lives

Homeless Awareness

   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


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.
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 inferiors.  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


Homeless Protection Awareness

If you are homeless or you know someone who is homeless and needs help or you feel has been mistreated in our community then we want to know. Please let us know so we can keep track of these incidents in our community and try to help create awareness when and where possible. We also want to help people living in unsuitable conditions. We will do our best to find immediate care for them. We care for people and are committed to the welfare of the poor and homeless in our area receiving care. We believe the homeless should be respected as humans, citizens of our nation, and in Christian love. 

If you know of someone who is homeless that needs help please let us know. It is because of our community partnerships that we can help!
