The Las Vegas Rescue Mission was founded in 1970 by a group of six businessmen who had a burden to help those who were homeless and hungry. Together, they secured a tiny storefront at 414 West Bonanza Road. By God's grace, they provided sandwiches and drinks, along with mats and blankets for men to eat and sleep away from the elements.
The Rescue Mission is composed of various buildings, taking up two city blocks near downtown Las Vegas. We have added a shelter for women and children, a playground, a thrift store, and a shelter for men, including a section for single fathers with children. We now serve approximately 30,000 meals a month.
