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 program includes:

  • Shelter
  • Hot meals
  • Showers
  • Clean clothing
  • Toiletry/hygiene items
  • Counseling

Every day, 365 days a year, hundreds of men, women, and children come through our doors hungry for a hot meal. Meeting this most basic human need is often the first step to helping them get back on their feet.

Having a safe place to sleep, and protection from the winter cold and summer heat, is vital. Our Community Services Campus has over 100 beds for overnight and temporary shelter. It’s at this entry point where we strongly encourage our guests to find solutions and many decide for the first time to turn their lives around.
