Rescue Mission Ministries

Emergency Shelter

It may begin with a hot meal and a bed for the night, but it doesn’t end there.

The Rescue Mission has three emergency shelters and a respite care unit committed to offering safe shelter to those who are homeless.

  • Family Shelter
  • Single Women’s Shelter
  • Single Men’s Shelter
  • Respite Care Shelter

The shelters offer a safe environment for people in crisis. In addition to a warm bed and three meals per day, there is medical attention, legal assistance and clothing assistance available. Spiritual guidance is offered through our nightly chapel services which are hosted by local churches of all denominations.

The Case Management Team does an initial assessment to establish the guest’s employment, housing, educational, legal, medical, childcare needs in order to make a realistic plan to exit homelessness.

This plan will help the guest access appropriate social services and create a workable solution leading towards a more stable life. It is the Rescue Mission’s desire for each person to feel welcome and to be empowered to live as independently and abundantly as possible.
