Purpose

Since 1948, the Orlando Union Rescue Mission's purpose is to bring the hungry, hurting and homeless to a new life, new goals and a new future in Christ.


Mission statement

The Orlando Union Rescue Mission is one of Central Florida's oldest and largest homeless service providers. The Mission provides for immediate physical needs -- including food, clothing and shelter -- however, our programs are designed to lead the homeless to permanent independence built upon a personal relationship with Christ.


Statement of faith

The Orlando Union Rescue Mission is a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions and subscribes to its doctrinal statement.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, ultimate authoritative Word of God. We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is deity, that He was born of a virgin, that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood, that He bodily resurrected and ascended into Heaven, and that He will come again in power and great glory. We believe that men are saved through a direct, personal encounter with the risen Lord, at which time they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. This event we hold to be an experience, rather than a doctrinal supposition. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom Christ indwells each believer enabling him to live a godly life of obedience as he reaches for maturity. We believe the Holy Spirit unites all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, the church.

History

June 16, 1948 - A group of local businessmen with a desire to minister to the needy of Orlando meet at Broadway Methodist Church to discuss the formation of a nonprofit organization.

Nov. 6, 1948 - The Orlando Union Rescue Mission is officially incorporated. Sites during the early years include 919 W. Central Blvd., 225 Boone St., and 211 W. Central Blvd.

July 1960 - The Mission moves into the former New England Hotel at 410 W. Central Blvd. That building now houses the Men's Home and will until a new Men's Home opens in early 2018.

February 1962 - A 21-foot neon cross with 10-inch letters is purchased for $778 and is placed atop the building.

November 1988 - O.U.R. Mission Family Home opens with 60 beds at 1525 W. Washington St.

Jan. 31, 1991 - Mission Bargain Store at 911 W. Central Blvd. is destroyed by fire. The store reopens a month later at a temporary location, and then moves back to a new two-story building at its former (and current) site in January 1992.

Feb. 19, 1995 - O.U.R. Mission Family Home dedicates a 20,500-square-foot addition that includes 114 beds and administration offices.

April 3, 2002 - Iconic neon cross atop the Men's Home on West Central Boulevard is designated a historic landmark by the Orlando City Council.

December 2013 - The Mission agrees to sell the Men's Home at 410 W. Central Blvd. to the Orlando Magic, pending the location of a site and construction of a new Men's Home.

Summer 2015 - Family Life Center undergoes $147,500 renovation to create a space designed specifically to meet the unique emotional, academic, and spiritual needs of homeless children.

December 2016 - Plans are announced for renovation of the former Parkwood Inn, at 3300 W. Colonial Drive, into a XXX-square-foot Men's Home that will feature 200 beds, as well as a new chapel and a dining hall.
