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 begun collecting items for Back to School. Throughout June and July, we are collecting backpacks, pencils, markers, notebooks, folders, 3-hole punch lined paper, binders, and pens in black and red. Our goal is to fill 100 backpacks!
For a complete list of items, please click here (link to: https://www.cvrm.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Supplies-Needed_.png). If you are ordering online you can also send items directly to the church, 47-321 Highway 74, Palm Desert, CA 92260 attn CRVM.
