“Mission at the Mission”

…  an Urban Retreat Center located in the heart of the Fresno Rescue Mission. This ministry exists to educate and equip church groups, schools, and community-based organizations to engage the population we serve through service projects inside and outside our facility.

Each of us has an opportunity to impact our neighborhoods, extending hope and acts of loving-kindness to people in need.  We play a vital role in being a loving presence and to extend an invitation to a better life for those who need us most.  Our thrill is to partner with YOU in this effort.

How does “Mission at the Mission” serve our community?

Through stories and a bit of education, we help groups identify and truly “see” their neighbors in need.   We help teams and individuals match their passions and skill-sets, connecting them to areas where they can make the greatest impact for social change. We help people respond effectively to the needs around them, making the most of every opportunity.
