Since 1906, Lima Rescue Mission has been sharing God's love with people in need through Christ-centered programs and services. Our primary focus is ministry to poor and homeless men by providing physical and spiritual care in a time of crisis. 

We are an evangelical Christian organization. All funding comes directly from individuals, businesses, churches, and others who want to be involved in helping the homeless and less fortunate in our community. We do not receive any funding from the government or other agencies.

We are grateful for those who take time to pray for our ministry. Please continue to pray for everyone we serve, that their hearts will be open to the truth and their lives will be transformed as they hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. We appreciate your prayers for our staff as well. Your support is an encouragement to us!

Collecting items that we use as part of our daily ministry is a great way to help others. View our list of current needs.
