The Eureka Rescue Mission was established in 1967 by David H. Eitzen in what was then known as the Bay Hotel, located at 110 2nd Street in Eureka, California. (The Mission is still at this location). When the Mission first opened, only the first floor of the then four story building was usable due to code restrictions. The Mission had 15 available beds by the end of 1967. The lot and building were purchased for $12,000.
