Community Rescue Mission - Fort Smith, AR

Community Rescue Mission is a not-for-profit, faith-based organization that provides safe shelter, meals, and needed support to help people get back on their feet as quickly as possible.  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.

We serve meals and provide shelter to the homeless in Fort Smith and surrounding areas.

Check in times are Monday through Friday 9am-3pm.

We serve dinner to the public Monday through Friday and we serve meals to our clients 7 days a week. We also provide all the necessary supplies to our clients.

Volunteers Requests by Community Rescue Mission: We accept volunteers for our clothing ministry, food service, and other. If you would like to volunteer, please contact our volunteer coordinator at

Donation Requests by Community Rescue Mission: Children's clothing, adult's clothing, fresh food, bottled water, bedding, sheets, laundry detergent, toiletries, cleaning supplies
