Founded in 1893, the purpose of the Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley is to serve and glorify God through Christ-centered outreach of love and compassion that responds to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of disadvantaged men, women, and children without regard to race, color or creed. In the last ten years, we've served over 1,300,000 meals to those in need. But just as importantly, we house, feed, counsel and educate hundreds each year through our residential program, helping them to get back on their feet and become productive again. They commit to turning their lives around, and we help them fulfill that commitment. We enable, encourage and equip people to improve their lives and ultimately, our community.

Official Charity Response

Thank you so much for reviewing Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley on Charity Navigator. Please note that in 2015, the Rescue Mission ceased the operation of our Distribution Center and Warehouse in Youngstown, Ohio to concentrate all of our resources into the shelter and the nearly 140 children, women and men who stay with us nightly (as well as to provide an average of 188 meals daily to the public).

With this change came a drastic decrease in the amount of in-kind donations that the ministry receives and distributes. This decrease in inkind gifting changed our financials significantly - from years past - due to not having the value of donated goods to show as income. If you have any questions, we are very happy to provide a tour andcomplete explanation of our financials. Thanks again for your interest.
