Emergency Shelter
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 guests 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.
