I started volunteering at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission in May of 2011. I help serve lunch to the residents. I have always wanted to help serve meals and finally asked myself "so what is stopping me?" Answer "nothing" So i decided to step out of my comfort zone and decided to volunteer to help feed others beside myself. It is so gratifying and it puts me in perspective of what God has blessed me with, family, home and job. I have gotten to know some wonderful people, other volunteers, works and the residents. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission is truly a blessing for men, women and children and families.

Well I am in no means being critical. But to my understanding, the men can be employed and also live at the mission for a small fee. The women can not do this, from my understanding if the women have employment but no where to live they have to give up their job and go through the nine month program in order to be accepted at the mission. This was told to me by a resident. Just wondering. Thank you

My Husband and I have been volunteering at the Shreveport Bossier Rescue Mission since August 2012. We work in the kitchen, the help desk, and with the children during chapel.
There is always something to do there. There is always an opportunity to help those in need and make a difference in
their lives and it is very much appreciated.
The staff is great and they truly care.
We love our time there and we will continue to go and serve for many years to come.

I have been associated with the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission since June, 2012. I have found the residents, employees, and other volunteers to be very welcoming and helpful. I have enjoyed the interaction with the residents and value what I learn from each and every one of them.

It
is very important to learn each resident's name that I will be meeting with and to give smiles and hugs to those that want them.

I've seen how the ladies blossom when they are acknowledged, respected, listened to and recognized.

I am very proud to be associated with such a great organization.

I believe the women's section is in need of a live-in mentor of the highest integrity who would pray with each resident and be available to assist with prayer needs; someone that all the residents love and respect. A person who can answer questions and to help new residents feel comfortable in their new home.
