Description: We provide emergency overnight accommodations for 75 to 90 homeless men and 15 to 30 homeless women, seven nights a week. Each overnight guest has the ability to take a hot shower, eat a hot dinner, sleep in a clean bed, and have breakfast in the morning. This is approximately 38,325 nights of safe shelter provided annually at the Mission.

Meal Program
Our meal programs provide approximately 8,500 - 10,000 hot meals a month to the needy in our community. This Thanksgiving we provided Thanksgiving food boxes for over 1,825 families in the Providence area. Each box contained 25 pounds of non-perishable food and a 15 pound turkey. At Christmastime, we provided 11,000 gifts to over 1,600 needy families through our Christmas Toy Ministry.

Discipleship Program
We run a one-year discipleship program that allows 10 to 15 homeless men with, but not limited to, substance abuse issues to start a new life by combining biblical values, counseling, education and career training and reunification with their families. This program is at capacity most of the time.

The Providence Rescue Mission features a full service dental office that helps Individuals start a new life with a smile they can proud of. Our office features x-ray, full cleaning, and other dental services. Local dentists and staff see patients by appointment only.
