Mission statement

Because of our love for and obedience to God, our mission is to mobilize the community to provide Housing, Health and Work services.

Statement of faith

Springs Rescue Mission uses the Nicene Creed as its statement of faith: We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

In 1996, our founders began providing sandwiches to homeless people in Colorado Springs in parks and under bridges. At the same time, 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.

Today, we maintain a Four Star "Exceptional Charity" rating with Charity Navigator and have received awards for excellence from the El Pomar Foundation in its human services category, an award for collaboration from Pikes Peak United Way in 2015, recognition for invaluable community contributions in the House of Representatives from Congressman Doug Lamborn, and endorsements from three Colorado Springs Mayors, Springs Rescue Mission's unique offering of relief and rehabilitation programs is a recognized and invaluable part of the Colorado Springs community.

Program accomplishments

We're on a mission to help our neighbors in the Pikes Peak Region find hope by providing for those in need. Last year we helped with:

204,905 meals

3,219 homeless men and women sheltered

58,123 job training hours

4,801 case management sessions
