For over half a century the Rescue Mission, a Christian Crisis Intervention Center, has continued a tradition of comprehensive care to those in crisis in our community. The homeless, the hungry, the chemically dependent, the impoverished and the hopeless have all found a warm welcome at the Rescue Mission. Men, women and children have found a safe place and compassionate friends in their darkest moments. The Rescue Mission is open 24 hours a day-7 days a week-365 days a year. The Mission programs involve personal responsibility, self-determination, an internal transformation of values and vision and a restoration of self-respect. It is a local organization confirmed by the dramatic results in the lives of people who have been ''rescued.''
