The Evansville Rescue Mission offers a hand to the tri-state's homeless, hungry, and impoverished through the following:

  • Residence Center - With a capacity of 202 beds, the Residence Center provides for homeless men and offers emergency services for the general public.
  • Camp Reveal - Camp Reveal is a year-round, 105-acre camping, conference, and retreat facility located just ten miles north of Evansville.
  • Thrift Stores/Donation Center and Trucks - Donations taken to Evansville Rescue Mission's Donation Center or Trucks are sorted and distributed to the ERM's three Thrift Stores to be sold, where all of the stores' net revenue goes directly back to financially support their daily programs and services.
  • Youth Care Center - The ERM's Youth Care Center (YCC) is a juvenile detention center for boys and girls between the ages of 12-17 years old, living in Vanderburgh County and the surrounding counties, and serves as a refuge for area youths.

Begin volunteering in one of these areas today by contacting the Evansville Rescue Mission at 812-421-3800.

Preparing you for Gospel Action in the Community!

Join us for a pair of interactive training sessions, on location with organizational partners in our city, designed to equip you for community engagement.

You will begin your day at our ministry partner's location, learning from local experts who understand the issues of our city and who will equip you with the tools necessary for contextual ministry. Then, you will apply what you learn in a hands-on project. The outing will end with lunch and an important debrief discussion.
