The City Rescue Mission of Lansing-MI is the best and well run shelter anywhere... They cater to the Men, Women and Children from all over the Lansing area... They do this for free... All of the Lansing Homeless that stay at the City Rescue Mission of Lansing are kept safe, they eat well, they are clothed with fresh clean clothes, they shower and sleep very comfortably.. They have a tremendous, dedicated and loyal staff.. You(homeless) come first... They work tirelessly to improve your life... There is never a charge for the lodging, food, shower or clothes... This is all accomplished by the generosity of wonderful people like you who donate to the Mission... The City Rescue Mission does not get any Government funding.. Never!! They do by continued contributions and donations by wonderful and caring people from all over Lansing. They are led by Executive Director Mark Criss... He is a tremendous leader, a true Christian and a man who has dedicated his life, along with others, to helping the homeless... The City Rescue Mission also feeds the Gospel Nourishment to all who will listen.. Spiritual and Physical needs go hand and hand.. When it comes to shelters for the homeless, there are some good shelters.. However, the shelter of shelters is the City Rescue Mission of Lansing.. They are the real thing... They talk the talk and they walk the walk... Please don't ever become homeless... But if you do, The City Rescue Mission of Lansing is there for you... All of you!!!
