Long Beach Rescue Mission

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The Long Beach Rescue Mission, started in 1972, is a Christian social service center for the homeless and poor in Long Beach, California. The mission provides care, food, clothing, shelter and spiritual guidance. Senior citizens and neighborhood families also come for meals or to attend worship services in the evenings and on Sundays. It is part of the Rescue Mission movement started in the US by Jerry McAuley.

The Long Beach Rescue Mission currently has two facilities. The 120-bed Samaritan House is for men, and the two-story 40-bed Lydia House is for women and their children. The Rescue Mission's programs include a one year residential New Life Program for men, and a computerized Learning Center.
