I support the Springfield Rescue Mission because they really work for the people who need their help. I make them a part of my Christmas giving and I'm thankful that they have been able to continue their community work in this little part of the world.

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.

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.
