In 1996, the founders of Springs Rescue Mission began providing sandwiches to homeless people in Colorado Springs in parks and under bridges, and they began inviting young homeless couples to stay in their home to give them a head start on life-change. Soon after, they opened a food pantry in one room of a small building. These humble beginnings rapidly grew into a wide range of programs intended to serve the 27,000 households living below the poverty line in the Pikes Peak region.
Springs Rescue Mission strives to meet residents “where they are” by providing a welcoming and safe environment that promotes transformation and empowerment. They work to see lives transformed and filled with hope as our community works together to fight homelessness, poverty and addiction.
