The work done there is exceptional. I have seen three of the men come to know the Lord in one service at our church. The time spent with them at the mission has brought them to that point of change in their lives. We have many attending our church that were rescued at that mission and are now productive people in our society. The leadership there cares. They work for God.

The Great!

I am a youth pastor in town and have brought my youth on numerous occassions to volunteer with this organization. We have had a full tour of their facility and met with the man in charge. He is clearly a man of God with a heart for changing mens lives. I have been extremely impressed with what they do. Working in the kitchen with a man who went through the program himself I saw firsthand how a drug adicted homeless person got back on his feet and is now making a difference in the world.

Every year we help them pack hundreds of back packs for underprivilaged children and we also help feed the hungry with them on occasion. This is a ministry that I enjoy helping and supporting because they are doing so much good in the name of Jesus.

I love the work they do at the Rescue Mission in Springfield. I've brought down pies, donated new toothbrushes and coats, and given cash towards their holiday meals. They appreciate everything that is donated. Their care and concern for those most in need, is the care that Christ would give if he were here.

We believe in their mission statement:
" to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the hungry, homeless, addicted, and poor." We have made cash donations and clothing donations because we believe in the SRM mission to help all people and their pysical and spiritual needs.
They offer a
much needed service in the Springfield Area, especially during these extremely difficult times, for those individuals who need a helping hand.
Keep up the good work and may God Bless You All for your service.

The Springfield Rescue Mission does what any organization should do...they keep God in the formula for success. I once had the honor of serving lunch to the men housed at the Rescue Mission. It was clear to me that, not only was God present in this facility, the men were letting Him into their hearts. I am not a wealthy donor; however, if I were to win the lottery, my wish would be to build a larger, new facility for the Springfield Rescue Mission so that more lives can follow Proverbs 3:6: "in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."

I just wanted to comment the Spfld Rescue Mission on the phenomenal job they do for the people who are so in need. i've lived in Springfield for almost my entire life and donate whenver I am able. I only wish I could do more for the people that are so dependent on the mission and their services.

Keep up the good work! It doesn't go unnoticed.

The only changes I would make if at all possible would be for the amount of support that the mission receives in terms of contributions and support.

This entity is well run and serves an enormously important role in the greater Springfield area. Their continued commitment to lifting the spirits of their clients and providing guidance and sustenance on many levels is the hallmark of this long time fixture in downtown Springfield. This winter, in particular, with its harshness in terms of temperature and unbelievable amount of snow, has shown that the Rescue Mission can rise above even the largest hardships and deliver amazing and empowering service to all of their clients.

Provide new sources of funding for services that are so desperately needed in this era.
