Visalia Rescue Mission

Since 1981, Visalia Rescue Mission is a faith-based, non-profit organization providing hope and restoration to individuals suffering from homelessness, addiction, and other situations prohibiting independence and self-sufficiency, such as the career limitations caused by a criminal record. We achieve this by providing programs, services and resources to help individuals become stable, thriving members of society. All services and programs are free to all individuals and we are funded entirely by donations from local organizations, churches, businesses, and individuals in our community.
