The Anchorage Rescue Mission is a Christian organization and our purpose is to show God’s love through example and in a practical manner by providing for the needs of the homeless, poor and needy in our community. We are a safety net for those who find themselves without food, shelter, clothing or hope.
The Rescue Mission functions as an overnight shelter to house the homeless of our community in a safe, warm and welcoming environment. Most nights we sleep 100 souls. Our kitchen feeds the homeless, the working poor and needy families an average of 7,500 meals per month 365 days a year.
We offer a six month shelter accommodation for women returning to the work force and transitioning to permanent housing. A two year Life Skills program allows between 25-30 men an opportunity for recovery and reintegration back into a useful life at no personal cost.
