Victor Valley Rescue Mission

The Valley Rescue Mission is a Christian Non-Profit organization ministering to the needs of the less fortunate in Southern California through emergency and long-term rehabilitation services.

Changing lives for GOOD!

The Victor Valley Rescue Mission was established in 2000 and became a part of the Rescue Mission Alliance in 2008. The Victor Valley Rescue Mission provides homeless men with opportunities for spiritual and physical recovery from addictions, job training, and job placement. Our programs are designed to guide, and encourage homeless men to formulate a daily plan of action, and to take the necessary steps to re-enter the work force and become productive citizens again. Our Outreach Services include hot meals, clothing, blankets, hygiene kits, food pantry, and a direct link between hospital, clinic, and other health related and community based services. The Residential Recovery Program offers addiction recovery, Biblical counseling, vocational training, transitional housing, and a computer learning center. Men who complete the recovery program develop the skills and confidence necessary to become independent and productive members of society. The transitional housing program helps graduates find and maintain stable employment, save money toward their own permanent residence, and continue the long road of recovery in a safe place where there is daily accountability.

Mission: With the support of our community, we offer: Refuge – Food, shelter, and clothing for those in need. Recovery – Biblically based programs to minister to the whole person; body, mind, and spirit. Restoration – Equipping people to lead productive and independent lives.

Operating as usual

Thank you St. Joseph Health St Mary. Your generous donation of N95 masks to the Mission allows us to expand our mask care for our staff, Life Recovery Program clients, volunteers and the neighbors and friends we serve. Thank you, Kevin Mahany, for setting this up for the Mission and Juan for serving us so well (you double blessed us!). We are grateful for our Community Partners - we all serve and serve better when we serve together! #sharingiscaring #BetterTogether

Here is how it all went down: Debbie A. Cannon, from AcademyGo, let me know that Bank of America was donating facemasks. I call up Christina Kennedy, our HD Food Collaborative partner at High Desert Second Chance, and she is interested too. So I request 10,000 (8000 to be distributed to the Food Collaborative partners and 2000 for the Mission). They came today. Yay! When the box of 2000 arrived we opened it up and within 5 minutes one of our regular neighbors and friends, Reuben, came to the door with no mask. Volunteer Brad handed a mask to Reuben and then we all went outside -Intern Gerard and Volunteers Brad, Laurie and Hayden who stood with Reuben for the last picture in front of the Mission. Just saw a boatload of cool pictures from the Food Collaborative Distribution today at High Desert Second Chance sure they will be sharing them soon! Collaboration is cool!

Thank you Bank of America and AcademyGo for this much needed donation – each day we give out many masks to our unsheltered neighbor and friends! - Dawn Quigg #sharingiscaring #bettertogether

Thank you Diana Amaya and Michelle Torres from St. Mary St. Joseph Health. Your donation for 500 facemasks for our neighbors and friends will go to good use here at the Mission as we provide PPE daily for those who seek our services. #sharingiscaring #bettertogether

Thank you Santa Inc for allowing us to share this wonderful clothing donation with several of our area non-profits. We value what you and they do for our neighbors and friends in need.

Thank you to the Victor Valley Rescue Mission for sharing this donation of 851 new clothing items for girls, women and men! Our families will truly be blessed to receive this gift. Thank you and God bless. #togetherwechangelives #communitylove #partnership

Your letters of encouragement and support mean so much to us. We have the best partners - you are generous, you are kind, you are people who delight in serving others. We thank God, everyday, for you!

Since the beginning of April, Maggie has blessed us with her cheerful presence and exemplary service. She came to us, on loan, from Family Assistance Program and will be returning to them starting next week, Thank you Family Assistance Program for allowing Maggie to serve with us and THANK YOU Maggie! We will miss seeing you here everyday but are glad to know we will see you because you are our neighbor!

The Mobile Shower Unit provided showers for 640 men, women and children in the month of April. The most yet! We thank you, our partners and volunteers, for allowing us to provide this service to our neighbors and friends. All receive a shower, socks, and underwear when they come to one of our service locations.

[05/07/20]   Please invite your friends and your church join in via Live Stream of the National Day of Prayer observance on Facebook. We are holding a virtual observance on the steps of Adelanto City Hall today at Noon. Please encourage your congregations, ministry partners, family and friends to join us. Consider setting up a watch party on your own Facebook account. Our host church, Impact Church’s video team will be broadcasting it to their church’s page: Impact Christian Church. You are welcome to direct your family, friends, and church members to that page.

This year’s theme, “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth”, is based on Habakkuk 2:14, and reminds us that this promise, “for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” is for us today. National Day of Prayer (NDP) Task Force President, Kathy Branzell, put it this way, “Unprecedented times call for unprecedented prayer! This year's ‘virtual’ National Day of Prayer Observance may have more prayer – and more ‘pray-ers’ than ever before!”

A group of compassionate friends of the Mission has offered us a Matching Challenge gift for emergency food, care, and life-changing help. Every dollar you give will be matched up to $14,460! Visit https://vvrescuemission.org/matching-challenge/ to learn more.

Bethanee, Holly and Aidan came by from LIFE Church to donate Facemasks for our Mission neighbors and friends. They made them in all sizes from Children to Adult XXL. Marilyn and Austin helped. Aiden is 12 and Marilyn is 85! We celebrate that everyone can find a way to keep their fellow people safer during this time of Pandemic. Thank you for helping us help others!
