About the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission
The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission provides shelter and guidance for homeless families at its Home Again Family Success Center in Northridge. It helps families recover from the devastating effects of homelessness by meeting their basic needs. For example, it provides food, clothing, and shelter while also working to identify the underlying reasons for becoming homeless and establishing a plan of restoration.
Their Renewed Hope Recovery Program located in Hollywood, serves homeless men living with issues of substance abuse and other self-destructive behaviors. Most importantly, they provide shelter, food, clothing, and case management services. Participants also receive classroom instruction and individual and group therapy sessions. Residents also receive vocational training that provides valuable work experience that often leads to full-time employment upon graduation from the program.
The Misson engages the unsheltered homeless on the streets through its Survival Outreach Services program. They provide hot showers, clothing, hygiene products, haircuts, and meals throughout Los Angeles County.
