“Hope Rescue Mission has given me a place to stay, to get my life in order, and is helping me stay drug free.”


“Hope Rescue Mission has helped me survive day to day- I have learned to depend on the Lord on a daily basis. The Lord gives me the emotional and spiritual help that I need.”


“The people at the Hope Rescue Mission are always willing to help. In my case, I came to the mission without a driver’s license and didn’t have one since 2005. Once I got my life together they helped me get my license and now I am a driver, picking up donations, delivering furniture to people and helping to bring money into the ministry. It may not sound like much, but it feels so good to something right, and to do it God’s way. I never could have done this on my own, and it was Hope that made it possible.”


“I came to Hope in November 2013 for my state parole home plan. I previously owned an antique furniture restoration company, and when I got to the mission I found out that I had the opportunity to work in their wood shop. I joined the Discipleship Team and after a few months I was promoted to manager. I never thought I would be a resident at a homeless shelter, but am so grateful because it’s here that I found Jesus and now I am focusing on my spiritual life and moving ahead with recovery, walking in a totally different direction!”


“Hope Rescue Mission kept me from killing myself, gave me an option when I didn’t have any other options. Pastor Steve has been very supportive to me while I have been here and Hope Rescue Mission has given me the chance to pause and reflect on my life in a safe, and loving environment.”


“Hope Rescue Mission has helped me to get my health in order, my health is life threatening and they helped me do what I needed to do to stay in good health. I am very grateful because they have helped me stay at Hope Rescue Mission and they gave me the support and mentorship that I needed. If you wanted to get your life together, the right way, they will help you take the extra step. They have accepted me the way I am.”
