The Great Falls Rescue Mission hosted two Christmas Parties this year for over 150 low-income families. We served more than 1200 meals and distributed gifts to over 600 children due to the generosity of our community.
We thank all our volunteers and those who sponsored or provided Christmas gifts for all the children. We wouldn't be able to do this without you!
Thank you for your year-end, tax-deductible gift as we meet the needs of the homeless women, children and men in North Central MT!
Larry looked as if he were on top of the world – successful and compassionate.
He was a radio announcer who gave back to the community, but things were not as they seemed. “I was doing things for other people – fundraisers, activities outside of myself. Meanwhile, inside...I didn’t care anything about anybody else,” he says. “Everything was about me.”
Over 700 meals were prepared for all Rescue Mission Thanksgiving events this year!

The 13th Annual Veterans Day Luncheon was held on Wednesday, November 11, 2015 @ 11:00AM.
Over 100 people attended the luncheon located at the GFRM Men's Shelter at 326 2nd Ave South.
Veterans in attendance were recognized and received a small gift of thanks for their service to our country.
The Great Falls Rescue Mission reaches out to homeless veterans daily through feeding, shelter, clothing, medical care and Christ-centered recovery programs. Approximately 25% of Rescue Mission clients are veterans.
The Veterans Luncheon was made possible by donated food items and the generosity of people in our community.
Thank you for helping our annual event be a success!
This month more than 50 million children around the country will report to schools to begin another school year. Sending the children off to school with all of the necessary supplies helps them start the school year equipped to learn. The Great Falls Rescue Mission along with many volunteers, churches, organizations helped by donating their time, talents and financial support.
We give God ALL the praise and glory for making His vision become a reality!
The Great Falls Rescue Mission broke ground on the multi-million dollar Cameron Family Shelter on Tuesday, June 30 at 11:30am.
After 13 years of using meth (a very addictive drug), Lynne was saved in 2000 – but then “life” interfered. “I got a good job managing a mini storage. It came with a house. I was making good money and running everything myself,” Lynne says.
Her kids grew up and left home, and “the devil got a hold.” “As long as the kids were with me, I didn’t do drugs,” she says. However, with them gone, she got “sucked back” into using drugs again.
Lynne quit going to church. She was successful, so she “walked her own walk.” Then God started “taking things away.” Her mother died in September and she lost a grandson to SIDS in October. The following March, her drug use cost her her job and with it, her house.
