Shelter KC is changing lives!

THE IDEA OF “SHELTER” EVOKES CERTAIN IMAGES and feelings in our minds.

A tornado shelter is a refuge during a life-threatening storm. A shelterhouse in a city park is a gathering spot for friends and family to share a meal and to celebrate. We think of someone who has lived a sheltered life as having been kept out of some of the chaos of life, at least for a season.

A shelter is a safe place, a place that stays steady in the struggle. A shelter is a serving place, where needs are met and help is found. A shelter is a sacred place, where truth is spoken and God is present. A shelter provides rescue, but so much more. A shelter is a refuge, a temporary home to recover, to strengthen, to heal, to learn, to find hope, to be restored.

As we complete our 70th year of compassionate service to our community, we’re excited to tell you that Kansas City Rescue Mission is now Shelter KC: A Kansas City Rescue Mission!
