Shelter Care Services

How can we help?

When the street has become the only place to call home, men, women and women with children can come to the City Rescue Mission to find shelter on a nightly basis. CRM provides our guests with a safe environment. Guests have the opportunity to shower, enjoy a meal and leave with clean clothing in the morning. Those staying the night are encouraged to attend nightly chapel service.

It will be okay. We’re here to help.

For many guests, shelter care services become a gateway into the LifeBuilders Recovery Program.

For people struggling with addiction, abuse or other destructive habits, this program provides transformational, whole-person recovery for lifelong success.
“It’s not about falling, but about how you get back up, City Rescue Mission gave me the tools I need to get back up when things get down… so now I can ride those sad waves and move on.”

— Margaret // LifeBuilders Student
