Solutions

How the Mission goes about the work of rescue.

The Phoenix Rescue Mission offers a number of Christ-centered programs and services to help men, women, and children escape hunger and homelessness.

On any given day, there could be up to 6,000 homeless men, women, and children in Maricopa County. Learn more about local homelessness

Shelter / Emergency Services

By his own admission, Chris had “lived a terrible lifestyle, and was broken to the core.” But at the Phoenix Rescue Mission, he found new life. “Without them, I would not have been blessed with a second chance.” It all started with a simple meal and a warm bed in our Emergency Services program — the first step toward a fresh start.

The Changing Lives Center for Women & Children

Charity was about to lose the only thing in life that mattered: Her 6-year-old daughter, Savannah. Charity’s expensive heroin addiction led to burglary and shoplifting . . . and then an arrest. She lost custody of Savannah, and was looking at a prison sentence of 10-15 years. So when she heard about Phoenix Rescue Mission's Changing Lives Center for women and children, Charity didn't hesitate to sign up.

Addiction Recovery for Men

“For 28 years, all I did was work, drink, and sleep,” says Tim. “I didn’t think there was anything else. But the Mission taught me that there was.” Indeed, there was much more for Tim . . . and for everyone who enters Transformations, the Mission’s addiction recovery program for men.

Solutions Program

Not everyone who comes to our doors is looking for a long-term recovery program. Some people simply need a job, an income, or a temporary place to stay while they arrange housing. Robert lost his job on a technicality and found himself suddenly homeless. He came to the Mission for shelter, but found our Solutions program and changed the direction of his future.

Vocational Development

For people in recovery, a huge challenge to finding long-term success is landing a steady job and becoming financially self-sufficient. When your past includes addiction, prison, and other trauma, that’s a tall task. But the Mission’s Vocational Development program makes it possible. Just ask Richard . . .

Hope Coach Mobile Outreach

John was living alone on the streets when a white van pulled up with the words “Hope Coach” written on the side. “Want a sandwich?” asked the driver, who then invited him to check out the Phoenix Rescue Mission. The next morning, John went to the Mission for breakfast . . . but he ended up getting a whole lot more.

Spiritual Recovery

For all of the programs listed above, spiritual recovery is at the heart of everything we do. No program or service can work fully without divine intervention, and no person is fully transformed without Christ.

Just ask Dennis.
