Mission Highlight: Thank you Janice for sharing about the Rescue Mission at City Impact! The Rescue Mission is one of many ministries at City Impact, a church and non-profit in the Tenderloin, an under-resourced neighborhood of San Francisco. Monday-Friday, there is a worship service before each free brunch and dinner, as well as access to a free health clinic and social services. In between brunch and dinner, there is a Bible study as well. Many of the people who come in are homeless.
With the free food, health clinic and social services, the Rescue Mission meets physical needs. Relationally, the volunteers eat with and hang out those who come, and many are formerly homeless or longtime residents of the Tenderloin. Spiritually, every day, through music and words, everyone who comes in hears that God loves them so much he sent his son Jesus to die and rise again so that they can join his family. They are prayed for.
At social services some common practical help can come in getting a free replacement ID, help with a resume or finding an open shelter bed. And unlike a welfare office (which do important work!) there is no long line of people in front of and behind, but time to talk and get to know stories and to pray together. It is a great context to help, hang out with, and pray for those who want and need it.
If you are interested in getting involved or sharing about volunteering at City Impact or any other organization in the city, please email Janice
! Also, if you have any men's interview clothing, their thrift store would really appreciate it! Please also pray for the strength and unity of the regular staff and volunteers, as well as for everyone who is hurting, suffering and alone to come to Jesus!
