ABOUT BOISE RESCUE MISSION MINISTRIES

Since 1958, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has been restoring faith, hope and family across the Treasure Valley. Today, we serve the homeless and addicted men and women of Boise, Nampa and surrounding areas from six unique locations in Ada and Canyon counties.

At Boise Rescue Mission Ministries, we see homelessness in its entirety. For us, taking care of homeless men, women and children isn’t simply about addressing physical needs — food, shelter, clothing — it’s just as much about addressing mental, emotional and spiritual needs.


OUR MISSION STATEMENT


Boise Rescue Mission Ministries reaches out to the community by teaching the Word of God and providing food, shelter, clothing and opportunities to recover from homelessness for men, women and children in need.

PROGRAMS & SERVICES FOR THE HOMELESS IN BOISE, NAMPA, ID & SURROUNDING AREAS

Boise Rescue Mission Ministries offers a variety of services to meet the needs of homeless men, women and children in Ada, Canyon and surrounding counties. Each year, we serve more than 370,000 meals, provide more than 130,000 safe nights of shelter, and distribute more than 60,000 items of clothing.

But providing for physical needs is just one small part of what we do at Boise Rescue Mission Ministries — we believe it’s just as important to care for emotional, mental and spiritual needs of individuals and families in our community. Through our programs and services, we’ve helped restore dignity, a sense of purpose, and hope for thousands of our homeless and hungry neighbors in the Boise and Nampa, Idaho areas.  Explore the links below to find out more.


EMERGENCY SERVICES: FOOD & SHELTER

Anyone in need of a hot meal or a safe place to stay is welcome to visit one of Boise Rescue Mission Ministries’ facilities — absolutely no prior arrangements necessary. No matter how busy we are, we will never turn someone away for emergency food or shelter due to lack of space.


ADDICTION RECOVERY: NEW LIFE PROGRAM

The New Life Program is a 12- to 24-month drug and alcohol addiction recovery program offered at the River of Life and City Light in Boise and the Lighthouse in Nampa, ID. Through discipleship, accountability, and a Christ-centered, Bible-based curriculum, we’ve helped more than  325 men and women overcome their addictions.


VETERANS MINISTRY PROGRAM

In partnership with the Boise Veteran’s Affairs (VA), Boise Rescue Mission Ministries opened the Veterans Ministry Program (VMP) in 2010 to support the Treasure Valley’s homeless veteran population. Through individualized care and counseling, we’ve helped hundreds of veterans across Southwestern Idaho get back on their feet.


WOMEN & CHILDREN

Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has two homeless shelters for women and children — City Light Home for Women and Children in Boise and Valley Women and Children’s Shelter in Nampa. From work-search assistance to counseling to addiction recovery, our programs are designed to help restore the lives of homeless women and their families.


Boise Rescue Mission Ministries offers homelessness services to individuals and families throughout the Treasure Valley area. With five locations in Boise and Nampa, we are able to provide for thousands of homeless men, women and children.
