Coachella Valley Rescue Mission, Indio
In 1971, a group of concerned businessmen and churches came together to form the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has been and continues to be a place where people can recover the life God intended for them to have. At CVRM, the homeless, abused, addicted, and needy have a place where physical, spiritual, and developmental needs are met.
Literally thousands of men, women, and children have been helped through the Mission’s programs. Today, the Mission feeds and shares the Gospel with over 225 clients per day. Over 190,000 meals are served in their kitchen each year and over 70,000 nights of safe shelter will be provided. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission could not do this without the kindness and generosity (both financial & hands-on commitment) of churches like us.
Current Need: CVRM has made it to Phase III of COVID Recovery, with NO COVID cases, and they are now open for individual volunteers for the kitchen, nightly Chapel services, landscaping, and the thrift store. They have social distance stripes on the floor of the kitchen and the thrift store, and also plexiglass.
On July 1 - All volunteers can start, including groups, children over the age of 12 with an adult. Also, all outside guests may come inside for our meal service. For further information or to schedule serving in the kitchen, please contact Janna Soderberg at 702-767-5262.
Current Need: Thousands of children in the Coachella Valley will face the coming school year without the supplies needed to complete class assignments and do their homework. You can make a difference in their lives by improving the quality of their education and reducing their anxiety surrounding the start of school. How? It’s easy! Just pick up a backpack next time you are at the store (or order it online!) and fill it with supplies from this list. Stocked backpacks must be dropped off to the church offices by August 5 or to the rescue mission by August 7 so that they can be distributed before the start of school.
