Community Rescue Mission is a non-profit, faith-based organization that provides safe shelter, meals, and needed support to help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  We've been operating since 1981.  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.

Our Story

The Turning Point Before the Grand Plan...

It’s important in life to hear when God sends you a message and to trust that, if you trust in Him, He will provide a path for you and supply you with what you need to achieve His plan. Though it is natural to want to look ahead in life, we run the risk of missing the people or things God needs us to see at certain times. In 1980, the paths of two families intersected and because they had both followed their callings and listened when God spoke to them—they were able to be in the right place at the right time to join forces and create something amazing. Grand plans can unfold but you have to have faith as to how, when or where it will all come together.
