The Rescue Mission Alliance is a Christian Non-Profit organization ministering to the needs of the less fortunate in Southern California through emergency and long-term rehabilitation services.
The Rescue Mission Alliance has served the homeless since 1972. It has grown from the first location on 6th Street in Oxnard to multiple locations in four counties throughout Southern California. Several distinct programs are offered at multiple locations, which provide a "Full Range of Care" for addressing the needs of the hungry, homeless, and destitute.
While the Rescue Mission Alliance is a Christ-centered organization, we are not a church. We recognize the need to join forces with the local churches of Southern California in order to provide spiritual nurturing and discipleship that is required for real hope and change in the lives of the people we serve. Many of our program participants and transient guests find regular churches to attend through outreach activities.
