The program has been designed to provide homeless men, women, children and families an opportunity, not only to obtain food, shelter, and basic life necessities, but also provides a foundation for individual and family restoration by developing a personalized plan based on their needs for achieving personal growth, employment, and housing.
Volunteers bring essential services to every Rescue Mission Alliance outreach ministry. Each year, thousands of people offer their time, talent, and goodness of heart to outreach projects, to help make a difference in the lives of the hurting and the homeless. Opportunities are on-going, year-round, and constantly changing. At the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission, there is a place for everyone with time to give.
