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.
Check in for overnight services begins at 2:30 p.m. Dinner for overnight guests is served at 3:30 p.m. for women and 4:30 p.m. for men. Breakfast is also provided. If you need immediate medical attention or law enforcement services, please call 911.
If you are a man needing shelter services, check in at the New Life Inn located at 234 W. State Street.
Do you have a job interview? Do you have basic clothing needs? The Community Closet offers essential clothing for the whole family – from winter coats for children, to professional attire for working adults.
The New Life Inn: 234 W. State Street
Open on Thursday from 9 a.m – 12 p.m.

“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.”
