escue Outreach Mission exists to serve disadvantaged people of Seminole County by providing resources that help prevent homelessness and by helping those who are already homeless return to self sufficiency.
Caring for the homeless is the mission of the Rescue Outreach Mission. We provide immediate relief from the danger, hunger, fear and suffering associated with homelessness. Yet we give more than food, shelter and warmth to those coming through out door. With the love of Christ and a safe family environment we are able to minister to the heart of each man, woman and child.
Hope for a bright future is the goal of our life changing programs. Through participating in educational programs the homeless learn valuable skills: anger management, parenting, proper nutrition and how to deeply explore their spiritual life
Assessing each person's needs is essential for guiding them on a journey to discovering full potential. Through listening, observing and diagnostic testing we are able to identify the spiritual, emotional, educational and physical needs of each person. This knowledge provides the tools needed to shape a healthy and productive life.
Independence and self sufficiency are attainable goals through our ministry. Working in partnership with our team of professional ministers and counselors, residents experience their own competence, newfound wisdom and confidence in their abilities. Teaching them how to make responsible choices and to take ownership for them is a crucial step in their becoming contributors to our community.
Recovery from trauma, addiction and self-defeating choices is the focus of our program. The staff is dedicated to creating a safe atmosphere which allows every person to revisit and process past painful events. They can then come to an understanding of the effects of the past and learn how to overcome them.
