DENVER RESCUE MISSION FAMILY RESCUE
The Family Rescue is a program of Denver Rescue Mission that helps families re-establish a home after a period of homelessness. The Denver Rescue Mission provides money for a deposit and the first month's rent on an apartment while also providing a great curriculum for the family to work through. Southeast provides teams of people to mentor these families, help them work through curriculum and gain life skills needed for success. Serving on a mentor team requires a 6 month commitment, meeting with the family at least once a month during that period. The Denver Rescue Mission provides training and support throughout the mentoring process.
