How to Help the Homeless

Partner with the ministry of Lima Rescue Mission

We are thankful for individuals, churches, and businesses who join us to share God’s love with people in need. The support of the community allows us to help others every day! Here are some ways you can get involved.

Collecting Needed Items

We distribute items to help care for others as part of our daily ministry, and we have been blessed by donations from many groups and individuals which allows us to maintain a supply of the items most often needed. The exact items needed varies from time to time, but usually includes personal care items, laundry detergent, and non-perishable food. Click here for a list of current needs.

Volunteer Opportunities

One of the best ways to volunteer is by serving or providing our supper meal. We serve meals every day of the year so there are many opportunities to join us. This is a great way to be involved in hands-on ministry and have direct contact with those we serve.

Prayer for Daily Ministry

We appreciate the support of prayer partners. We are thankful for prayer for our staff, our daily ministry, and all those we serve — that their hearts will be open to the message of Christ and that they will experience healing in their lives.

Financial Support

Throughout our history, our funding has come from individuals, churches, and businesses who want to partner with us to provide care for the poor and homeless in our community. We do not receive any government funds or funding from other agencies; we do not accept any funding that would impose restrictions on sharing the Gospel. We have been blessed by a community of believers whose giving makes a real difference in the lives of people in need. You can easily donate online.
