In the last year…

We know that before you invest in an organization, you want to know more about them: what they do, who and how they help, what are their values, etc. Our prayer is that the following information will give you the answers you are looking for about Cleveland County Rescue Mission (CCRM) and our 24/7/365 ministry to love the homeless and hopeless.

Since the founding of CCRM as an emergency overnight shelter until the recent move (May, 2015) into a larger (24/7) facility that offers a health clinic, computer lab, library, and safe shelter for nearly a hundred under-served individuals in Cleveland County, the Rescue Mission has made a hugely positive impact on the community. A promising 80% of residents make a commitment to the long-term programming which includes employment preparation and regular case management and directly contributes to 25% of our clients achieving employment and independent, safe living. We served over 360 separate men, women, and children and provided over 34,000 meals during the last fiscal year. We believe that our holistic approach to homelessness and recovery lends itself to a much higher success rate of returning individuals to the productive members of society they once were and were always meant to be. Twenty-two mothers and children were reunited last year as a direct result of the spiritual renewal the women at Heart2Heart Place are finding through a personal relationship with Christ.

In addition to the provision of basic needs such as a meal and bed, we also provide access to services that will directly address the workforce development needs of our homeless population and give them the life-changing tools they require to return to independent living.

Will you join us and help us transform MORE lives this year?!
