About Northlands Rescue Mission

Since 1942, we have reached out with God’s love to men, women, and families experiencing homelessness and seeking a hand up from their desperate situations. Some have lost their livelihoods because of addiction. Others could no longer support themselves when job opportunities dried up. Still more are victims of broken or abusive relationships that forced them from their homes. With the support of compassionate people like you, Northlands Rescue Mission empowers these people and helps them rebuild their lives.
We are a Christian-based emergency shelter serving adults and families experiencing homelessness and hunger. We are committed to helping people live healthy and stable lives. We work with our community to Fight Poverty, Reach Out to people in need and help them get a Stable Start through our Client-Led Engagement. Click a button below to learn more!
