History

In 1971, a group of concerned businessmen and churches came together to form the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission. Assistance was provided by the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles, which seeded the endeavor with funds to purchase the present property on Van Buren Blvd. in what was then known as the Carver Tract. A soup kitchen and overnight shelter served the growing displaced and needy of the valley. The addition of the men's dorm and shower facilities were added onto the original WWII era meeting hall, kitchen and dining room. In the mid-1980's the Mission saw a growth in the number of displaced women and families, and purchased the adjacent club, "Hot Spot" which was remodeled into the Women and Family Shelter. A new dining room, kitchen, walk-in cooler and freezer, and the second story administration and program offices were constructed at the same time. The Coachella Valley Rescue Mission has been and is a place where people can recover the life God intended for them to have. At CVRM, the homeless, abused, addicted, and needy have a place where physical, spiritual, and developmental needs are met.


Program accomplishments

A dedicated staff and volunteers serve more than 340,000 meals annually and provide shelter to thousands of men and women with children.
