In the 21 years since our founding as Missoula 3:16 Rescue Mission much has changed, but the needs of the unsheltered and at-risk population remain. Our name has changed to Union Gospel Mission of Missoula dba HOPE RESCUE MISSION but our mission has not…serving those in greatest need by the grace of Jesus Christ.
Our outreach programs are made possible by YOU, our partners, and we plan on bringing forth more exciting solutions for the region soon. The vision for serving the poor that brought the fledgling Mission into being in 1999 has grown up and 2021 will see those plans in solid, mature form. Together we can seek EMPOWERMENT over entitlement for those in greatest need whom God has given us to serve.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, as neighbors and friends come together to help each other. Think of the absolute need of working together to accomplish community impact as we serve those in greatest need. As we work with willing participants, we do not compromise our values or our Biblical standards, and yet we participate with others to reach the vulnerable among us.
To say it another way, those in need do not care about what we know, until they know we care. To that end, we engage in good deeds with willing partners across our community to search, serve, rescue, and help them discover The Path of transformation, Jesus Christ.
Covid-19 has brought added uncertainty to the year, but we do not let what we do not know keep us from reaching out to those we do know. Our hope and our daily prayer is that you, our faithful partners, will join together with us to serve the unsheltered and the broken in this “most wonderful time of the year”. Every cent donated to Hope Rescue Mission remains here in Missoula and Western Montana to serve those in greatest need.
