City Rescue Mission
Changed lives are the goal of the Men’s Ministry. Since 1911, tens of thousands of men have come through the doors of the City Rescue Mission. Through several different approaches, the Men’s Ministry cares for those in need.
Community Feeding Program
The Community Feeding Program provides one hot meal every day (including holidays and weekends) to any hungry individual. For many, this is the only meal that is eaten that day. The overall goal of this program is to assist the homeless and poor with better nutrition and to use the meal as a bridge to establish a relationship. Hope does begin with a meal at the City Rescue Mission.
Crossroads Shelter Program
The Mission’s Crossroads Program provides a safe bed in which to sleep (usually, for one to 90 days), food, and casework to help homeless men get established in the community. The over-all goal of this program is to help the homeless to improve their quality of life and become self-sufficient.
"During my short stay here, I was amazed by the amount of support that goes on here for the needy. It does my heart good to see good positive Christian people helping the less fortunate. God is truly pouring His blessing upon this place."
- Mark, a Crossroads Shelter guest
Men's Recovery Program
The Mission's Recovery Program provides intensive biblical discipleship to those men who are interested in addressing life issues such as bondage to alcohol, drugs, gambling, pornography, and unemployment. Each man who participates in the Recovery Program has a safe place to live, food to eat, opportunities to learn good work habits, personal and group bible studies, discipleship, educational opportunities, and access to a compassionate and caring staff. Each man experiences a life-changing love that empowers him to be completely restored...a new creation. Admittance to program is after successful evaluation in Crossroads Program.
