The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission was established as an outreach ministry of the Rescue Mission Alliance – a Christian based non-profit organization. In 2002, the Mission launched the Family Shelter program. The Family Shelter provides a fresh start to families who are experiencing homelessness by offering up to 10 months of shelter in a comfortable, home-like setting. The shelter includes community gathering spaces, a large dining room, a commercial kitchen, a computer lab and individual rooms for families. For families with infants, cribs and changing tables are provided. They also have a Shower Truck that travels throughout the valley.
