Thank you for considering the Long Beach Rescue Mission as a place to invest your support. Since 1971, our quest has been to provide hope and healing, serving Greater Long Beach by improving the quality of life of people who are hurting and homeless. I am happy to report we have been consistently faithful to that cause.

While the Mission has been dedicated to restoring lives of the homeless, our purpose has evolved based upon the growing and changing needs of our community. As the Executive Director, I am fully committed to deepening and strengthening programs, communicating their unique work, continuing to build a dynamic team of employees and volunteers, broadening the Mission’s financial support and carefully planning for the future.

On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, I invite you to join us as we strive to ease homelessness in our community. If you are already a supporter I say “thank you” for your active interest in this life-changing ministry. If you are new to the Long Beach Rescue Mission I say, “welcome.” As you learn about our story, struggles and successes, my sincere hope is that you will find us worthy of your time and consideration.

I ask that you pray for us and your role in helping advance the work of our Mission. 

We will be deeply grateful for whatever measure of support you provide, and trust that God will bestow His abundant blessings on you. Together, we can make a difference!

With great gratitude,

   Robert Probst, Executive Director
