Chattanooga Rescue Mission


Shelter Inquiries for Community Partners

Please note these important details about our shelters.


  • We are an evening shelter so the earliest a person can come on the property is 5 PM and everyone leaves at 6 AM the next morning. 


  • The Mission provides a bed, shower, meal, and chapel. It’s all free of charge. A person only needs an ID to stay. 


  • Our beds are first come first served the first night. After you receive a bed, every successive night you return, you are guaranteed to keep your bed. 


  • We cannot accept any male shelter guests who are not able to navigate five flights of steps independently throughout the night.


  • We hope our guest’s stay with us is a blessing. Let us know if you have further questions.
