This month more than 50 million children around the country will report to our public and elementary schools to begin another school year. Sending the children off to school with all of the necessary supplies helps them start the school year off equipped to learn.

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.
Thank you to everyone who came out to Buffalo Wild Wings on June 17. We raised almost $400 to support the services and ministries to the homeless in North Central Montana! We are so grateful for your continued partnership.
The Great Falls Rescue Mission is busy behind the scenes preparing for the "Back to School Rally" in August.
Sunday, August 23, 2 to 4pm!
Each year the Mission hosts a Rally which helps over 900 students with a backpack filled with the necessary school supplies to begin the school year. Typically donations are down during the summer months which puts a financial burden on the Mission.
We pray that you can help by donating some of the school supplies or making a financial donation to offset the cost of the largest event the Mission hosts during the year.
Please bring donated supplies to the Mission (in the alley at 326 2nd Ave S.) by Friday, August 14. We also need volunteers to pack and distribute supplies the week of August 16th.
To volunteer, please call 406-761-2653.
Camp Life Light is the Mission’s annual summer day camp. The six week day camp takes place in and around Great Falls. We sing songs, play games, do crafts, go on outings, and most important, we share the gospel daily. This is followed by a week-long overnight camp at Camp Upmost.
In order to have a great camp we need great staff and volunteers. The back bone of the camp are Summer Missionaries, someone (age 15 and up) committed to spreading the love of God to at risk youth. Maybe you have done years of youth ministry or maybe this is your first experience. What matters is a heart committed to Christ and a willingness to serve.

Please join us on June 30 @ 11:30am for a short ground breakingceremony followed by a BBQ at 408 2nd Avenue South.
What is the need?
- On average, Great Falls Rescue Mission receives at least one request every day from a family with children needing shelter!
- The Great Falls School District reported 400 homeless students for the 2014-2015 academic school year.
- There is currently no facility in North Central Montana that can provide a shelter for families with children!
The Family Center Vision
The Great Falls Rescue Mission Cameron Family Center will become “the temporary home” where no homeless family suffers and struggles alone, and where families do not have to be broken up in order to receive the help they need.
