The Oroville Rescue Mission is a religious non-profit organization which serves the homeless and disadvantaged in the Oroville area and its surrounding communities. It is affiliated with the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions.
The Oroville Rescue Mission operates a homeless shelter with 24 beds in the Menís Shelter and 14 beds in the Womenís & Childrenís Shelter. The Mission serves three meals a day seven days a week and holds nightly chapel services. We give out blankets and clothing to homeless and disadvantaged people who come to us for help, as well as those who come to us for a shower and a safe place to sleep.
In addition to helping the homeless, the Oroville Rescue Mission distributes food boxes to needy families in the community. The Rescue Missionís New Life Recovery Program is a Christ Ė Centered discipleship program for those in recovery and transition.
Our goal is to preach Christ crucified in order to reach the lost with the good news of the Gospel. As in the parable of the Good Samaritan, the Good Samaritan only met the physical needs of the man who was in need. We operate under the premise that at times, all we can do is meet an individualís physical needs and thereby prepare the way to minister to the individualís spiritual needs.
