Coachella Valley Rescue Mission
For the past 39 years, Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has existed to serve those in need by providing food, shelter, clothing and spiritual recovery.
We provide shelter for 80 in house residents which include men, women, and children. We also open our chapel floor nightly for shelter for 25 additional men and women.
The Mission offers an array of classes including job training, anger management and counseling, English, Math and computer skills, and assistance in obtaining a GED.
All services at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission are provided free of charge without regard to race, creed, age or ethnic background.
We currently are raising capital for a new facility to replace the current 1930’s era buildings. We have $7,508,155.00 of the $12 million needed. The new facility will include expanded public service areas, a men’s shelter with 90 beds and separate women and children’s shelter with 60 beds. With the desert growing rapidly, there continues to be a substantial increase of people in need and valley wide community support will be the key to meeting this goal.
We are continuing to pursue sources of funding in order to close the gap and finish the project by the end of 2011, debt free.
