About Our Rescue Mission
Helping make Long Beach A Better Place for All
Since 1972, the Long Beach Rescue Mission has opened its doors to thousands of men, women and children. The mission provides food, clothing, shelter and spiritual guidance to the homeless and less fortunate people of the community.
The Long Beach Rescue Mission stands dedicated to helping individuals overcome the homeless cycle. We achieve long term goals and make a world of difference in today's society.
Senior citizens and neighborhood families also come for the meals or to attend worship services in the evenings and or Sundays. The mission provides loving care and spiritual guidance to help the homeless find purpose, direction and hope.
Individuals are encouraged to find jobs or enter the mission's one year New Life Program, which helps men deal with substance abuse and plan positive directions for their lives. When employment is found, we allow our guests to stay at the mission's facilities until they have saved enough money for their own housing needs.
The Long Beach Rescue Mission is comprised of two facilities. The Samaritan House serves as a home for men while Lydia House offers a safe haven for women and their children.
