Go to our Idaho Gives profile any time between May 2nd and May 5th to give:
On our Idaho Gives profile, we share a story with you of one of the men who has changed his life for good thanks to the help he found at Boise Rescue Mission Ministries. Justin has been walking out his journey of recovery from addiction and finding new life at the River of Life (ROL) men’s shelter. Because of your generosity, testimonies like Justin’s are possible. People who need a hand-up have a place to turn to here at the Mission. However, with the privilege of owning a building like ROL, it is also necessary to keep it fit for service.
“The hardest part of homelessness, I think, is that homelessness creates loneliness. Loneliness creates fear, and fear brings desperation into the hearts and minds of people. Our job at the Rescue Mission is to encourage and inspire people…” Rev. Bill Roscoe, CEO/President
Every day, the Rescue Mission’s River of Life shelter serves 300 meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). It provides more than 250 emergency shelter and program beds per night. We need your help repairing and replacing deteriorating floors in the lobby, 1st-floor hallways, and the cafeteria and kitchen.
This Idaho Gives, the Mission is asking for your help to raise $90,000 toward this need.
Every dollar matters and every penny you give to us goes toward changing peoples’ lives here in the Treasure Valley. Thank you for partnering with us to help our homeless neighbors and providing for this project that will continue to bless those in need for many years!
