City Rescue Mission exists to transform the lives of the homeless and needy, serving them through the love and compassion of Jesus Christ.

Volunteering support is vital to the transforming work of the City Rescue Mission.

To begin volunteering, please fill out the information in the following link: https://cityrescuemission.azurewebsites.net/Volunteers/Create. Then simply attend the next volunteer orientation, where you will receive valuable volunteer information and a tour of the Mission.  For group volunteering, only one representative from the group needs to complete the volunteer application and orientation.

If you would like to volunteer in the food services section, you MUST wear closed-toed and closed-healed shoes and long pants (no capris or crops).  Shirts must have sleeves (no tank tops or spaghetti straps). Wear clothes you are comfortable in and don’t mind getting a little dirty!

If you have any other questions about getting involved with City Rescue Mission, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Kim Crockett at kcrockett@crmjax.org or call 904-421-5149.
