Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The Rescue Mission of El Paso is working to address the problem of homelessness and addiction within the community. We do this by providing safe shelter, food, clothing, counseling and access to medical care. Those who are homeless do not have access to basic necessities and that creates an endless cycle of homelessness. We provide basic needs so that they can work on finding a job or stable housing and allow each person to become self-sufficient.
