We are committed to helping people who are experiencing homelessness and addiction in our city change their lives.
As a rescue mission, our primary goal is to see these lives transformed through personal accountability, education, spiritual development, and community relationships. Thanks to the partnership of our donors and volunteers, we meet the needs of people suffering in poverty and homelessness through emergency services, rehabilitation, transitional programs, and community outreach.
Denver Rescue Mission is changing lives in the name of Christ by meeting people at their physical and spiritual points of need with the goal of returning them to society as productive, self-sufficient citizens.
What We Do
Emergency services are designed to meet the immediate needs of people experiencing homelessness like meals, shelter, hygiene, acute medical care, and the most basic form of stability. Through these services, we build trust and relationships with the people we serve, encouraging them to consider long-term solutions.
Homelessness and addiction destroy the lives of thousands in our city. Our program graduates overcome destructive habits, maintain healthy community, obtain full-time employment, and provide for their own sustainable housing.
Families and individuals facing homelessness despite having income can develop and practice important life skills, save money, gain the tools they need to provide for their own housing, and transition into a self-sufficient lifestyle through our transitional programs.
For people at risk of becoming homeless or transitioning out of poverty, the Mission provides assistance with basic needs like food, clothing, furniture, and other household items. Community events like our annual Thanksgiving Banquet-in-a-Box and Adopt-A-Family program also provide encouragement through the holiday season.
