Rockford Rescue Mission is recognized as the region’s primary provider of assistance to the homeless,
near-homeless, addicted and working poor in the Rock River Valley.
Rockford Rescue Mission shares hope and help in Jesus’ name to move people from homelessness and despair toward personal and spiritual wholeness.
At Rockford Rescue Mission, we don’t focus on the “issue” of homelessness. We hone in on the real people who are affected by homelessness. And, we help them find real change.
Every year, the Mission provides nearly 132,916 meals and 49,506 nights of lodging for men, women and children.
The needs are so great in the Rock River Valley, but with faithful prayers and financial support, we can continue to offer food, clothing, shelter and long-term life-recovery programs for those who are homeless, hungry and hurting.
Please help real people make real change. Give today.
