2010 Annual Report


RESCUE MISSION 2010

Choppy seas call for a prepared crew, diligent navigation, and a hopeful spirit to know that bright skies are on the horizon. This year brought many challenges for nonprofits nationally and here in the Puget Sound. The Rescue Mission navigated these difficulties successfully because of our great team of paid staff and volunteers. I am grateful for our faithful partners and supporters, and for their great attitudes that come from knowing that our work for the poor, hungry, and homeless in Pierce County is making a tremendous difference. The highlights for me are the completion of our new Adams St. Family Campus, our New Life and Family Life Graduations—which helped change many lives and brought new beginnings—and my regularly scheduled coffee events with supporters that many of you participated in. I love sitting down face to face and chatting about what excites and inspires you about the Rescue Mission, and sharing the challenges and victories we are facing in our service to others.

If I could say one thing to everyone it would be: THANK YOU! Without everyone working together it wouldn’t be possible to meet the rising demand for food and shelter in these challenging economic times. The Rescue Mission isn’t a government agency, we’re not a church, and we’re not a social service agency. We are a private organization dedicated to building a better and more loving community by caring for the hungry, lonely, lost and discouraged. Our faith shows us that everyone has value and is worthy of love. That philosophy motivates us, and those who partner with us to keep navigating towards a better future.

RESCUE MISSION 2010

To relieve (someone) in need, sickness, pain, or distress. Diverse individuals enter our facilities seeking assistance for all kinds of reasons whether it be for addiction recovery, a safe place to rehabilitate from an illness, or needing someone to extend the love and guidance they were lacking as a child. The Rescue Mission values the needs of our clients. The services we provide are structured to help them regain their dignity and pride in their abilities to make a positive impact on the community, and to live full, independent lives.

“My mom died when I was young, my dad was an alcoholic, and I moved out when I was 15.”

RESCUE MISSION 2010

To look forward to with desire and reasonable confidence. Many of our residents arrive because of the necessity to meet their basic needs, but end up leaving our programs with the resources to become self-sufficient. This past year, the Rescue Mission provided 249,297 meals to hungry individuals, and 135,691 safe nights of sleep. We provide more than just food and shelter, we provide important educational programs that give individuals a new beginning and hope for a better life.

“One day I had enough, I came to the Rescue Mission and entered the New Life Program.”

“It wasn’t just a place to live temporarily, I got a safe environment, and time to get on my feet.”

“I was referred to Tyler Family Campus, it is the first place my daughter has called home in 2 years.”


RESCUE MISSION 2010

Growing sound; getting well; mending. Healing our clients’ hearts from the adversity that leads them to us through services like our Challenge Learning or New Life Programs is pivotal. We provide the emotional and educational support to raise them above their limitations and to believe in their abilities to do well . . . to become optimistic thinkers, and to overcome their negative experiences as an important lesson for self-improvement in the future.
