A Fresh Start and Second Chance for Those in Need...

The City Rescue Mission is the largest shelter in Michigan's capital area and serves about 140 men, women, and children every year. Guests at our women and children's shelter or our men's shelter have the option to participate in extended stay programs, which include case management and other benefits. We offer counseling, classes, and more at these locations.

However, there is a segment of the homeless population made up of men and women who struggle in the traditional shelter environment. Whether it is due to addiction, severe mental illness, or simply life choices, the Mission is committed to providing a safe haven and basic life services to those who would otherwise live on the streets. The Mission's drop-in center, the Outreach, is the only faciilty of its kind in Michigan's capital area, and we have seen as many as 40 men and women in a single evening. Our goal is not only to meet the needs of this community, but also to offer encouragement and support for transitioning into a more stable future.
