The City Rescue Mission provides food, shelter, and hope to women, children, and men in Michigan’s capital area. We operate the largest shelter in our community and have met physical and spiritual needs for over 100 years. Last year, we served over 142 guests every night. Of those 142, more than 83 were women and children. Other services include our public dining room, providing over 100,000 meals a year at no charge to those in need.
Why a thrift store?
As we are able, we supply our guests with all they might need (food, shelter, hygiene items, or clothing). When you give to or shop at our thrift store, you help the Mission provide “rescue” to the many women, children, and men who utilize our services. Funds from the store also enable us to meet operational needs and purchase specific items that are needed but not often donated.
