Lima Rescue Mission provides physical and spiritual care and recovery to poor and homeless men. Below is basic information for receiving help from the Mission. If you have any questions, please call 419-224-6961.

Food and shelter

Meals are served twice each day, breakfast is at 7 AM and supper is at 5 PM. Check-in time for our overnight dorm is 7 PM, a mandatory chapel service is held at that time. Clothing and personal care items are available.

Spiritual care and recovery

Bible studies, life skills classes, discipleship and other opportunities are available at various times. 

What to expect

When you first arrive, one of our staff will go over basic rules for our overnight dorm. You will be scheduled for an individual meeting with our Director of Men's Ministry so that we can get to know you better. We will evaluate your needs and identify ways we can help, and will assist you in connecting with other agencies as needed. We will work with you to set achievable goals and expect you to show that you are working toward them.
