A Message from the CEO
Since 1887, we at the Rescue Mission have had the privilege to serve our community – offering shelter, food, clothing and hope. Every employee at the Rescue Mission; whether they work at one of our Thrift Stores or our Distribution warehouse, in our residential programs, at the emergency shelter, driving trucks or making meals all have the responsibility of helping those who are in the most need, the hungry, homeless and hurting.
I’ve been part of this organization for over a decade as a social worker, previously working for several local non-profits and as a staff pastor at a local church. My wife and son and I live in this community where we believe similarly to the founders of the Rescue Mission, that what we do for those who are living in the margins of society, reflects what we would do for God.
The “why” we do this is pretty simple from my perspective. Everyday there is someone or some family in our community who is overlooked and ignored with no where to go. We are the place where they will be welcomed, served and supported. We put love into action!
