First Peter 5:7 says “Casting all your care upon Him, for He careth for you.” From
this verse, we derive our statement of purpose: To Bring Hope to the Homeless.
To show the love of Christ to the needy in our area by providing their physical,
emotional, and spiritual needs.
To reach people whom others would
consider unreachable. We are dedicated
to ministering to the needs of the
homeless and transient population
in our area. Our shelter guests
are treated with love, kindness,
respect, and compassion. All our
shelter guests are provided warm
meals, showers, clean beds, and
safe shelter for the night. We endeavor
to provide a healthy alternative
to the temptations of street life.
Our goal at the Chattanooga Rescue
Mission is to show the love of Christ
to a lost and dying world.
Overview of our Mission
We are a non-profit 501(c)3 faith-based organization that believes that God’s Word has all the answers to man’s sin problem. It is our goal to share God’s saving grace with all of our guests. One of the first steps in this process is providing food, shelter and clothing to those in need. As we meet these base needs, we pray that God will open their hearts to any spiritual needs that they may have. Eighty percent of our funding comes from individuals within and around our community who believe in the work of the mission. An additional 10% comes from supporting churches and the remaining 10% comes from businesses and grants.
