Notes from the nonprofit

The Good News Rescue provides more than immediate emergency services. The Good News Rescue Mission strives to break the cycle of homelessness through the provision of restorative services. Poverty, Addiction, mental illness, and dysfunctional relationships are four primary causes of homelessness. In effort to address these barriers the Mission offers comprehensive programs which address these concerns.

Programs that address Poverty include Money Management and Work Search. Money Savings Program which allows a person save money while in shelter with us until permanent housing can be obtained. The program also includes credit and money management trainings. The Work Search program assist participants in seeking employment. Each participant is required to make 20 work search contacts weekly and meet with a job coach. The program also includes classes and assistance through the Mission's Academic and Job Readiness Center

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

1. Provide emergency shelter and food service to those that are in need
2. 75% of the participants in the Academic Center and Job Readiness Center will obtain employment or be enrolled in continuing education as a means of securing long term employment.
3. 100 guest will obtain permanent housing by December 2014.

1. Provide facilities and resources to ensure shelter is available for those in need.
2. Provide academic and job readiness class hours with volunteer tutors to assist with goals.
3. Provide participants with a case manager and program resources for the purpose of securing permanent housing.

The Good News Rescue Mission has been providing emergency services and restorative programs for those who are homeless and addicted for 50 years. The Mission is staffed with trained professionals in the field and is assisted by 300 community volunteers to deliver services.

The Mission has continued to accomplish the goals of the organization through the provision of daily services and restorative programs. In the later part of 2013 the Mission began to track more closely impact outcomes as it relates to the success of the following restorative programs:
Work Search
Money Savings
Academic and Job Readiness
New Life Recovery Program
Obtaining Permanent Housing
Prior to 2014, the Mission tracked the number of services provided but did not have the software to track the impact. The Mission implemented an agency wide database to now be able to collect this information.
