Ministries: Who We Are & What We Do

chain_02As the Tri-State area’s oldest (since 1917) and largest ministry of its kind, the Evansville Rescue Mission is a non-denominational, Christian social service organization reaching out to those often overlooked in society—the homeless (men over 18), troubled teenagers, disadvantaged youth and impoverished families, living at or below the federal poverty line.

With a total of 54 employees and an organizational budget of $3.4 million, the Rescue Mission oversees four ministry divisions located in southwestern Indiana: the Residence Center, the Youth Care Center, Camp Reveal, and the Evansville Rescue Mission Thrift Store.  Having these resources and ministry divisions allows us to offer a variety of ministerial services to our community.

To ensure privacy, we do not sell or rent our donors’ names, addresses, e-mails or phone numbers.  All donations are fully tax-deductible.  Your gifts are used to care for people in need all year long!


With such a diverse ministry and a limited staff size (54 total), the Evansville Rescue Mission’s staff wear multiple hats to ensure that each of our ministry divisions are running smoothly. But we could not and can not complete this significant work without the energy, enthusiasm and compassion of our faithful volunteer base… our volunteers are the lifeblood of our ministry. Without volunteers, the Evansville Rescue Mission would not exist.

Faithful Friends Club

The Evansville Rescue Mission is blessed to have faithful friends who provide food, shelter and care for those in need 365 days a year.

Through their monthly or quarterly gifts, these members of our Faithful Friends Club provide food for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, clothing for people in need and care for the men, women and children in our community who have nowhere else to turn.
