Mission Our mission is to lead our community by serving the homeless and near homeless with help, hope, and healing, in the spirit of excellence, under the call of Christ.
Background City Rescue Mission was founded in May of 1960 by a group of businessmen concerned about helping the transient population in downtown Oklahoma City. It continued to impact the city and in 2007 the Mission hired Rev. Tom Jones as President and CEO. Since then, the Mission, under Rev. Jones leadership, has developed the recovery program known as the Bridge to Life Program, which currently touts 70% client participation. Additionally City Rescue Mission has expanded its Social Services Center by partnering with over 70 local agencies offering comprehensive care free of charge to any City Rescue Mission client, including those from the community at large. City Rescue Mission is helping end homeless, one individual at a time.
Most pressing needs are monetary donations, food, volunteers, diapers, and clothes.
