Sustaining Life

Life House provides immediate relief from hunger and homelessness.

The Bible tells us whenever we feed the hungry, clothe the needy or help the poor, we’ve done it as unto the Lord. Life House lives out this biblical teaching every day. Here, transient men stay for the night or a few weeks, while the needy in our community find three free meals a day as well as clothing, hygiene products, referrals—or simply someone to listen.



Immediate Housing Program

Housing Program for men up to 30 days. Basic needs, case managers and ongoing spiritual support. Includes goal setting and referrals to other health and social service agencies. If The Rescue Mission determines a man needs more intensive services, he’s invited to enroll in one of the programs of Restoration House if eligibility requirements are met.

Community Meals Program
  • More than 216,000 meals served each year?.
  • Breakfast, lunch and dinner open to Mission residents and the public 365 days a year.
  • Special meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Free clothing and hygiene products as well as referrals to health and social service agencies.
