We're Moving! While we explored a number of locations within the South End, the former Orr Cadillac parcel was the only site that truly fit our needs. We look forward to working with our neighbors and City officials to completely renovate this long-dormant facility so that we may continue providing the type of care and support this community has come to expect from the Springfield Rescue Mission. We should be in the new building within the next year. The building will house our Rehabilitation Program, Give-Away Center and business offices. Our Emergency Shelter at 148 Taylor Street will not be affected with this move.
Prayers: Please pray for our new neighbors, pray that the building would be move-in ready so there is no interruption in services, and please pray for the $579,000 move-in expenses that are needed. If God puts it upon your heart to donate toward this move CLICK HERE.
Parking: Parking is no longer available at 19 Bliss Street for guests and volunteers. $3/day parking is available at 73 State Street. If you are bringing donations, please use on-street parking in front of the Rescue Mission, Monday - Saturday, 8am-6pm.
VIDEO: Stand with us during this exciting time and DO SOMETHING for God - watch our video now.

- Donations DOUBLE in Impact! Find out more . . .
Any gift you give in May will DOUBLE instantly to help our hungry, hurting, and homeless like Walter and Danny. Like so many others right now, they would be struggling just to survive on the streets without the programs and services provided by caring hearts like yours. At the Rescue Mission, they found the help they needed to build new lives! Walter and Danny also formed a lasting friendship, and they support and encourage each other. They have learned that, “two are better than one . . . if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV. But many more still need your help.
Until May 31, you can make TWICE the impact when you send your gift to be effectively DOUBLED by the power of our $100,000 Annual Matching Challenge. With your gift and prayers today, TWICE as many lives will find help, hope and much more!
