The Mission has initiated its Building Hope Campaign to raise $3 million needed to build a 32-unit building for our Hope for Men program and a 20-unit building for our Hope for Women program on our new campus, along with a Chapel and classrooms (buildings outlined in green on site plan below). These faith-based programs are transforming lives, and a new campus would mean increasing capacity and changing more lives!
So far this year, 115 men and women found independent housing within the community after completing our programs. We couldn't have done this without the generous support of community members like you. We want to continue doing God's good work. The Mission needs your prayers and your financial commitment to make a new campus a reality. You can be the resource that God uses to change the hearts and minds of men and women for His Kingdom. If you have never given to the Mission before, please consider a one-time donation today, any amount helps. Or set up monthly, quarterly, or annual donations. Even a monthly donation of $8 can make a huge difference.
Please pray for the Mission programs, participants, and those still finding their way to the Mission to learn about God's amazing grace. Donate today!
HISTORY: In January of 2017 the Rescue Mission was forced to relocate as our 100-year old building on Canal Street was not up to code. At that time, we had a capacity of about 30-40 beds in our system. For two months, Christian Life Center graciously allowed us to use their youth room to house our men's program. In two short years we have expanded to 100 beds and 13 locations throughout Merced, and we still often have a waiting list. The Merced County Rescue Mission is recognized as an important participant in addressing the needs of people who are homeless in our county. What sets the Rescue Mission apart is that we are not only a low-cost provider of services, but as an arm of the Church, the Mission unabashedly provides services in the name of Christ! In December of 2018 we were able to purchase 5 acres of land two blocks south of the Merced County Fair Grounds. The Mission is excited about the opportunity to expand our services with a new campus and better meet the needs of our county.
The Mission wants to thank all of you, who as supporters of the Mission, provide a strong base on which we can move forward and build for the future. God is doing great work through the Mission; lives are being powerfully changed and you are an important part of this.
