The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’"- Matthew 25:40
Our mission: To give hope, care and love to the homeless by providing meals, shelter and referrals to additional local resources.
The Sheriff's department has notified us that we are no longer allowed to serve the homeless at or around the river bottoms area. In the past they have told us we couldn't use the street next to the levy, though it's a dead end, nor the parking lot across from the levy because it's private property, and have even told us that we can't serve down at the rivers bottoms itself. It's time we stood up to the unwillingness of our city officials and law enforcement agents to see our ministry as it is, a ministry of God who simply want to help some people that are in need.
If you are interested in learning more or how you can help us in this endeavor, please email us.
In addition to providing meals to the homeless, we also refer them to local resources such as Casa De Esperanza, Hands of Hope, REST Shelter, Salvation Army, Restoration Railroad, HandUp Ministry, Hope Point Nazarene & St. Isadore Church.
We also work with Cross Road Church to supply sleeping bags and tents for temporary shelters.
We currently feed close to 1000 homeless people a month, serving meals to them three times a week. But without the constant support and contributions from people like yourself to buy the supplies and food we need, we can't possibly hope to sustain this all important ministry.
We humbly ask that if you feel moved to do so, that you donate what you can so we can serve God by serving our homeless.
*Please note that PayPal donations are routed through one of our volunteers, but RBM receives 100% of what you donate.
