To meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of homeless men, women and children.
Shelter programs- the lives of over 650 homeless men, women, and children were changed, moving them toward a stable, sustainable lifestyle through bible-based programs which address the underlying causes of homelessness. Six residential guests participated in training for food service certification and passed the "servsafe" test for commercial kitchen food safety.
outreach programs- weary souls found hope that someone cares through two free hot meals served daily; 124,493 meals served in fye 2015. At christmas, 922 families with 2,760 people had a joyful celebration with the food and gifts provided through the mission's red ribbon christmas outreach. During fye 2015, 1,101 families were helped with groceries.
resale shop- extremely reasonable prices on mechandise gave working families a way to purchase their clothing and household needs. For those without resources, clothing valued at 84,721 was given out free of charge. Cost of sales of 274,661 is included on the statement of revenue, line 10b.
this represents a collaborative community effort with another 501c3 (kokomo urban outreach) and the ministerial association to assist with food insecurity (food to you) and help with utility costs (muff).

Reviews for Kokomo Rescue Mission
I have both volunteered at and recieved services from this organization. They are wonderful to work with and willing to help in so many ways.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
recieving a box fan when the temperatures hit the 90s because I had no fan or AC in my mobile home. They also help with food boxes, household goods(dishes,linens,cleaners) free meals for anyone in need, and clothes. If you need help that they cannot supply they will refer you to someone who can.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Increase the food bank because the amount of food donated does not meet the needs of the comunity, even though they do try.
