This agency meets so many needs from providing a meal or short term housing or even some long term life rehabilitation to help people learn needed skills to get back on their feet. Additionally they go out into the community looking for those needing help and meeting as many needs as they can. They share the love of Christ and hope to people as well but they don't force it on anyone. The workers and volunteers in this organization love people and sincerely desire to help the most needy in our community.

A long-standing organization with a kind heart that truly cares about individuals and their well-being. It doesn't surprise me that the organization has survived for well over 100 years. Keep up the good work!

Just wanted to add my voice to support Springfield Rescue Mission. I give because I believe in their mission. I give ecause while I can't be the hands that serve, I trust them and appreciate them acting on my behalf. I give because they are effective at what they do for each individual that walks through their door and for their contribution to the community at large.

This organization has been something I have donated throughout the years. It's goal is simple. To provide hope to the hopeless. To show love and concern where a person may never have felt it. I give because it is a local charity that gives a hand up rather than a hand out. If I should ever find myself in such dire need I would pray that someone who has enough would be gracious enough to share..."there but for the Grace of God go I"

God Bless the entire Springfield Rescue Mission and all those involved in making someone's day or life...better than before they walked in!

The spfld rescue mission gives a hand up, not a handout. I give to this charity regularly as I know it makes a huge difference in peoples' lives. The mission has been around for quite a long time, and offers many services to those in need.

My life was changed by volunteering at the Springfield Rescue Mission. I am a practicing physician in our area and helped out with medical visits there. In reality, my best experiences were volunteering in the kitchen, with groups of teens from my church.
I was able to see and hear first-hand
the impact this wonderful group of people and the grace of God made in the lives of the homeless and addicted.
One person at a time, lives are being rescued from hopelessness, and doors are being opened to faith and a new walk in life for the thousands of people who pass through the doors of this humble facility---residents, guests, and volunteers alike.

The Springfield Rescue Mission helps the needy in our city. They are there to feed the hungry. They give shelter to the homeless. I have seen the testimonials of many people who are helped by this mission, so I regularly donate money to help in their efforts. Not all of us are lucky enough to have food and shelter, therefore we need organizations like these to help the less fortunate. My husband and I will continue to support these efforts.

The Springfield Rescue Mission plays a crutial role in the survival of homeless and needy in the Greater Springfield area. Their Operation Sonshine offers food, personal care essentials, and encouragement where it is needed most, the neighborhoods and streets of the city. The Emergency Shelter offers a warm bed, hot food, and a stable roof for the night for those who temporarily cannot afford one. The staff is friendly, kind, and willing to help in constructive ways. While seeing to many people's short-term needs, the Mission also focuses on the long term assistance that will make a permanent difference in people's lives. Targeting heart, soul, and lifestyle through their in house programs for men, they provide resources for the men to change their lives and become independant and functional again. Their ministry has impacted not just Springfield and MA, but the whole of New England for the better.

Where would the homeless of Springfield be without the Springfield Rescue Mission? I give to the rescue mission on a regular basis because I have heard the testimonies of men whose lives have been radically changed by the Rescue Mission. They said it was at the Rescue Mission where they found new meaning, purpose and direction. It's these testimonies of transformed lives that encourages me to continue to support the Rescue Mission. I thank God for the work they do among the poor and downtrodden of our community, and the results speak for themselves.

The Springfield Rescue Mission plays an important role in the lives of many, many individuals. It has been one of the harshest winters in the NE and what would we do without the Springfield Rescue Mission? I can not imagine, and never want to be without the wonderful individulas involved or the organization itself. God bless them all today and always.
