Meet Allen

For a long time, Allen worked as a truck driver and a restaurant cook, both trades inspired by his father. Sadly, he was afflicted with serious health issues and is now unable to work. Despite this, he helps out as much as possible around the Mission. Allen is always the first to volunteer when a staff member or client needs help. At the same time, Allen is working with the Mission's social worker to find stable housing and qualify for necessary benefits.

About Northlands Rescue Mission

Since 1942, we’ve reached out with God’s love to men and women who are homeless and seeking a hand up from their desperate situations. Many lost their livelihoods because of decades 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. We’re here for all of them, because people like you care.
We are a Christian-based emergency shelter serving homeless adults. We are committed to helping people have their best life possible, we work with the community to Fight Poverty, Reach Out to people in need and invite them to get a Stable Start through our Client-Led Engagement.
