The Rescue Mission of Roanoke Chapel

With the mission statement “helping hurting people in Jesus’ name,” the Rescue Mission of Roanoke is a comprehensive crisis intervention center for men, women, and children. We offer life-saving services aimed at transformation and restoration.

Donations make a difference

From one-time gifts and monthly giving to planned gifts and critical in-kind donations, there are some great ways to give and make a difference. The services provided at the Rescue Mission wouldn’t be possible without our donors. Each successful move out, each graduate from the Way Forward Recovery Program is possible because of you. Look at our giving options and see how you can change a life today.

Volunteers are the Heart of the Mission

Volunteers are at the heart of what we do at the Rescue Mission. Volunteers don’t just provide services to our guests, they also bring the compassion, love, and warmth that is critical to the cause of serving those who are hurting. Do you have a passion for helping others? We want you. Check out our volunteer opportunities and more here.

Rescue Mission Profile in Commitment

Daneen has been on staff at the Rescue Mission of Roanoke for just about a year. She is the first shift supervisor for the Women and Children’s Center. “The work at the Mission is so important to me because it’s a representation of Christ’s intent for a communal plan to aid in the need of our community. It is Love. It is helping hurting people in the name of Jesus” she recently told us in an interview. Daneen is the first of a weekly series we have celebrating our 75th anniversary at the Rescue Mission. Click below to hear more from Daneen through our podcast, Rescue Recorded.
