Celebrating 60 years of help, hope & healing

0615_SDR_NL_01storyAugust 1955, a group of local religious and business leaders turned their deep concern about the growing number of hungry and homeless men, women and children into action.

With the support and partnership of compassionate citizens, the City Rescue Mission began providing food, clothing and spiritual guidance for San Diego’s neediest people. Within three short years, the Mission was sheltering 85 men each evening and had made history by opening San Diego County’s first shelter for women and children!

60 years later, with the strong support of open-hearted individuals and organizations, San Diego Rescue Mission is providing an even wider range of programs that lead to positive, lasting change for those we serve – change that makes our community a better place for all of us to live.

There is no rescue without you.

Please join us – as a donor, a volunteer, or a participant in one of our special events – as we begin our next 60 years of service, bringing help, hope and healing to every man, woman and child in need in San Diego County.
