St Joseph Community Health Foundation Supports The Rescue Mission With $10,000 Grant

The Rescue Mission has been awarded a grant from The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation in the amount of $10,000. The grant will support The Rescue Mission’s life-changing programming for homeless men, women, and children.

“We’re thrilled to receive this grant from such a respected foundation in the community,” said Laurie Brumbaugh, Rescue Mission Senior Vice President. “For The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation to support the many people we serve each day is such a blessing.”

The Rescue Mission’s restorative programs have been changing the lives of the homeless since 1903. Twana, a Charis House long-term program graduate, said the programming at The Rescue Mission’s Charis House changed her life and her daughter’s.

“If it wasn’t for Charis House, I don’t think I’d be here for my children,” Tawana said. “It changed my life. So I thank God for Charis House. It’s a life saver. It’s my miracle place.”

The Rescue Mission is a faith-based, nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, providing restorative care to men, women and children experiencing a homeless crisis. The organization serves Fort Wayne, Allen County and its nine surrounding counties. The Mission is comprised of four ministries, or houses, that function as communities of compassion.
