Ed found help and hope at the Mission

Nobody should have to live and sleep on the street, especially during months of harsh weather conditions like we have experienced this summer. Thankfully, because of donors like you, people in the Treasure Valley don’t have to. Here at the Rescue Mission, all who are in need of safe shelter and good food are welcome.

Ed is disabled, with disc fragments in his spine from a workplace injury years ago. Last summer, Ed was living on the street. He had no family, nowhere to go, no reliable source of food, and he felt like nobody cared about him. During this time, Ed went hungry, and suffered third degree sunburns on his legs.

Ed’s life changed when he came to the Mission. He says, “It just feels wonderful to know that there’s somebody here that cares about me. I don’t have to wonder where my next meal is coming from, and I have a place to sleep out of the heat. Now I’m working on getting my own place.”

There are hundreds of people in our community just like Ed. Your gift today will provide safe shelter from the heat and life-saving services. Thank you for partnering with us to replace homelessness on the street with hope for better future.
