About Boise Rescue Mission Ministries

Since 1958, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has been restoring faith, hope and family across the Treasure Valley. Today, we serve the homeless and addicted of Boise, Nampa and surrounding areas from five unique locations in Ada and Canyon counties.

At Boise Rescue Mission Ministries, we see homelessness in its entirety. For us, taking care of homeless men, women and children isn’t simply about addressing physical needs — food, shelter, clothing — it’s just as much about addressing mental, emotional and spiritual needs.


Our Mission Statement


Boise Rescue Mission Ministries reaches out to the community by teaching the Word of God and providing food, shelter, clothing and opportunities to recover from homelessness for men, women and children in need.



Frequently Asked Questions

How do I volunteer? Do you accept all ages?

To volunteer at one of our facilities, simply fill out the appropriate volunteer form. A member of our volunteer staff will contact you to arrange details.

We can accommodate volunteers of all ages and abilities — simply notate any special needs on your application.


 

I need help. Do you have room at your shelters?

Space at our facilities fluctuates depending on the time of year, but we will never turn away a person in need. If our beds are full, we have mats to accommodate extra guests — no prior arrangements needed. Check-in is at 4:00 p.m. daily at all of our shelters.

If you are in need of services beyond food and shelter, we also provide addiction recovery, veteran-specific programs and more.


 

Do you require chapel attendance in order to receive assistance?

No. We offer chapel to those who are interested, but it is never required in exchange for a meal or place to sleep.
