about boise rescue mission ministries

Since 1958, Boise Rescue Mission Ministries has been restoring faith, hope, and family across the Treasure Valley. Today, we provide homeless services to the men, women, and children of Boise, Nampa, and surrounding areas from six 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.

our statement of faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.
  2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  3. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and
    atoning death, through His shed blood, and His bodily resurrection, and in His personal return in power and glory.
  4. We believe in the salvation of lost and sinful men and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for salvation.
  5. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting,
    conscious punishment of the lost.
  7. We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

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 for lack of space. If our beds are full, we have mats to accommodate extra guests — no prior arrangements are needed. Check-in is at 4:00 p.m. daily at all of our shelters.

If you are in need of homeless 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.

Can I host an event or food drive on your behalf?

Yes! Send us your contact info and our Events Coordinator will get in touch with you to discuss details. To contact us directly, email [email protected], or call 208-343-2389.
