Phoenix Rescue Mission AZ
The Phoenix Rescue Mission was founded in 1952 by six businessmen from the Phoenix area. In the beginning, they ministered to migrant workers and vagrants. Homelessness was not yet a term that was associated with persons who had unfortunate circumstances. The Mission has expanded its services to offer three meals daily, a 24-hour walk in center, showers and clean clothing, up to 150 emergency shelter beds nightly, a 21-bed Residential Addiction Recovery Program, a Career Education Center, Chapel services, and referral information. Hope Coach is a van sent out daily providing lunches, bottled drinks, Christian literature, blankets and a friendly word of encouragement to the homeless on the streets. Last year we:
* Provided 11,293 bed-nights of shelter;
* Provided 14,503 hours of classroom programming for men in our recovery program;
* Served 285,812 meals
* Distributed 9,614 cases of water; and
* Partnered with 7,364 volunteers.
