CITY RESCUE MISSION
For nearly 60 years, City Rescue Mission has been a beacon of hope to thousands in Oklahoma City and beyond.
Instead of indefinite shelter, CRM offers a clean, safe, temporary place to stay and successful programs and services to help people transform their lives for the better.
The Rise Cafe, a social enterprise of City Rescue Mission, is located just across the street from the Mission.
City Rescue Mission's clients in our training program are able to learn hands-on skills in the Cafe and build confidence as they prepare to re-enter the workforce.
CITY RESCUE MISSION IS:
JESUS IS OUR ROCK
We’re believers united through Christ to serve God and the poor.
Our faith compels us to make our services and programs available to people of all backgrounds.
Our arms are open to anybody, regardless of race, class, gender or religious beliefs.
WE'RE DEDICATED TO THE WELLBEING OF OTHERS
When people are lost, we help them find their way.
We’re as focused on the mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing of others as we are our own.
PEOPLE CAN CHANGE - AND DO
We’re optimistic by choice. When times are hard, we’re confident things can get better. The lost can find their way back onto the path toward a better future.
Tired souls can find rest. Bitter attitudes can sweeten. We believe everyone is fully capable of changing for the better, to become the person they’re meant to be.
WE KEEP OUR WORD
We keep our word and expect others to keep theirs. We’re good stewards of our facility and our community.
We hold ourselves and our staff accountable. We’re fiscally and operationally responsible.
