Back to School & Changing Rhythm


By the third week of August in Midwest school districts, the rhythms of life for many students (and parents) are changing.  The summer months brought a sense of fun and relaxation, but now, students are adjusting to structures, routines and the pressure of obtaining and maintaining good grades.

For many facing a homeless crisis, life continues to be a series of ups and downs with a lack of predictability.  Life for them brings a sense of not knowing what to do or  where to go.  Life often becomes a series of missteps.

The Rescue Mission, because of our commitment to serving men, women and children, provides a safe environment for people to find stability, structure and purpose for living. 

As the school year began, our donors helped us provide desperately needed school supplies and clothes for approximately 60 children.  Thanks to our donors, these children were able to start school without falling behind or feeling out of step with their peers as they adjust to the classroom and the changing rhythms of life.

At The Rescue Mission, it is our desire to see our residents find their own rhythm and more importantly to live their lives in step with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Thanks for your support.  Together, we are changing lives for good.
