The Visalia Rescue Mission is a local, Christian-based non-profit. We serve our community by providing overnight shelter for men and women. We sleep on average 130 people each night and serve three meals a day, 365 days a year. We are currently serving approximately 515 meals daily.

Additionally, we operate a nine month recovery program for men and women, including a mentoring program, life-skill training as well as job internship programs. We rely heavily on volunteers to support our work within hurting sectors of society. We are funded entirely by donations from local businesses, organizations and individuals.

The VRM owns and operates Rescued Treasures Thrift Store on Mooney Blvd. and Simply Chic Boutique on Main Street in Visalia, CA. All proceeds from these stores directly benefit the VRM. The Mission also operates the Mission Market (seasonally), a gym, a 4-plex transitional housing unit and the Oval Park revitalization project in conjunction with the City of Visalia. Our Community Center provides case management and counseling services to our guests. Since its opening in September 2012, over 100 individuals that were previously on the streets have found housing and employment through our Next Steps program.
