Fairbanks Rescue Mission exists to serve Christ and our community by addressing the physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, and social well-being of all those whom God brings to our doors. We serve homeless men, women, and children from not only the city of Fairbanks but also the entire Fairbanks North Star Borough community and the outlying rural areas. The Mission operates the only overnight men's and women's emergency shelter in Interior Alaska. We play a key role in the life of our community. Lives are changed at the Fairbanks Rescue Mission every day. We try to meet both the spiritual and physical needs in helping needs towards restoration -- to a correct relationship with God and a productive relationship within our society. Long-term transformation is our goal.

Program Name: Emergency Shelter

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Fairbanks Rescue Mission provides people experiencing homelessness with a temporary place to stay.
Impact Statement
$20 provides a night of shelter for a person experiencing homelessness.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of emergency shelters are based on the cost of providing a night of shelter relative to the Fair Market Rent in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 200% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 400%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Fairbanks Rescue Mission.
Data Source
We look for self-reported shelter nights. If we cannot find this information we estimate it using HIC data.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that the provision of shelter by one nonprofit does not diminish the provision of shelter by any other (neighboring) nonprofit. We also assume there is, in general, no slack capacity in the homeless shelter system. In the absence of a given shelter, beneficiaries would not be able to stay at another shelter because other shelters are assumed to have no beds to spare. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.
