Meeting physical needs
The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission currently shelters 150+ men, women and children. CVRM also offers a Emergency Shelter to an additional 75 men, women and children each night in our multi-purpose overnight shelter. All people in this program are served breakfast and dinner along with the options of showers, clothes, hygiene and case management services.
Taking the next step
So that they may regain self-sufficiency, the Mission offers or directs individuals to an array of local programs including job training and counseling services. Various classes are available, such as English, Math and computer skills, as well as assistance to those in need of obtaining a GED. Classes required by agencies such as anger management are also offered. Transportation is available to schools, jobs or medical facilities.
Ministering to spiritual needs
As important as physical needs may be, we believe that meeting the spiritual needs are even more important. Since our facility centers on faith, daily devotions, Bible studies and a faith-based 12-Step Recovery Program are in place. We also offer evening chapel services, presented by many area churches, groups and individuals from across the valley. The church community’s participation is very important to the Mission as we minister to the spiritual needs of those coming to us for help.
