In the glow of Christmas,
give the gift of love and light.

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.
