The Visalia Rescue Mission is a Christian-based non-profit organization. We serve the local community by providing a homeless shelter for men, women and children; we sleep on average 130 people each night and serve three meals a day; 365 days a year. We are a 24 hour shelter. We are currently serving approximately 515 meals each day; over 180,000 meals in 2009!
We operate a nine month Christian-based recovery program that includes a mentoring program, life-skill training as well as a work internship programs. We rely heavily on volunteers from our local communities to support our work within a hurting sector of our society. We are funded entirely by donations from local churches, businesses and individuals. We are celebrating our 30th Year Anniversary this year.
