The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission is an outreach ministry of the Rescue Mission Alliance.



Food, shelter and clothing for those in need.



Biblically-based programs to minister to the whole person: body, mind, and spirit.



Equipping people to lead productive and independent lives.


The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission provides shelter and guidance for homeless families at our Home Again Family Success Center in Northridge. Our family shelter offers families the opportunity to recover from the devastating effects of homelessness by meeting the basic needs of food, clothing, and shelter while identifying the underlying reasons for becoming homeless and establishing a plan of restoration.


Our Renewed Hope Recovery Program located in Hollywood, serves homeless men living with issues of substance abuse and other self-destructive behaviors. In addition to shelter, food, clothing, and case management services, participants receive classroom instruction and individual and group therapy sessions. Residents also receive vocational training that provides valuable work experience that often leads to full-time employment upon graduation from the program.  We engage the unsheltered homeless on the streets through our Survival Outreach Services program, providing hot showers, clothing, hygiene products, haircuts, and meals. The mission’s mobile shower unit travels to churches strategically located throughout the San Fernando Valley to meet the needs of those living on the streets. Delivering showers and meals to our homeless members of the community helps build relationships that lead to positive steps toward addressing the root causes of their homelessness and setting them on the path to recovery.

We offer services free of charge to the poor and needy in our community with a wide range of life changing treatment programs that address the whole person – body, mind, and spirit.

Each year, thousands of people offer their time, talent, and goodness of heart to outreach projects, to help make a difference in the lives of the hurting and the homeless.
