San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission Rescue SOS Mobile Shower

iCrowdNewswire - Nov 1, 2015

San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission Rescue SOS Mobile Shower

the project

The Valley Rescue Mission is dedicated to providing homeless men, women, children and families the opportunity, to not only to obtain food, shelter, and basic life necessities, but the chance to rebuild a foundation for individual and family restoration. 

 

The Rescue Mission’s Rescue Survival Outreach Services (Rescue SOS) helps individuals and families to meet basic, life-essential needs and serves as a link to social services in the community, including the organization’s own emergency shelter, residential substance abuse recovery, and transitional housing programs. Throughout the week the Rescue SOS team truck travels to different places within the San Fernando Valley and is equipped with a mobile shower unit, hot nutritious food, and clothing and hygiene items for distribution. 

 

Because there is only one mobile shower unit to service the entire San Fernando Valley, the Rescue SOS team is limited to providing showers for only 20% of the 1,500 men, women and children they serve and accommodate each month. This is where our community can help! 

 

Our project goal is to raise $16,000 dollars to provide the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission – Rescue SOS program with a second mobile shower unit so that they can reach out and care for more families every day.

why we’re doing it

In September of this year, the Los Angeles City Council announced a plan to declare a “State of Emergency” on homelessness in the City of Los Angeles. By declaring a “State of Emergency,” the City of Los Angeles will be able to research long term solutions and the possibility of fast tracking building permits, entitlements, and environmental reviews for affordable housing projects. 

 

But what about those on the streets today? With more than 25,000 people homeless in Los Angeles, and approximately 19,000 families and individuals continually going without shelter, our City has an unprecedented homelessness crisis and a lack of emergency supplies including food, water, resources and care for their everyday needs. 

 

The San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission is dedicated to providing homeless men, women, children and families the opportunity, to not only to obtain food, shelter, and basic life necessities, but the chance to rebuild a foundation for individual and family restoration. By developing a personalized plan based on needs for achieving personal growth, employment, and housing. Currently, the San Fernando Valley 

 

Rescue Mission provides a variety of programs serving thousands of men, women, children, and families. One program is called the Rescue Survival Outreach Services (Rescue SOS). The goal of Rescue SOS is to meet the basic, life-essential needs of homeless individuals and families and to serve as a link to social services in the community, including the organization’s own emergency shelter, residential substance abuse recovery, and transitional housing programs. Throughout the week the Rescue SOS team truck travels to different places within the San Fernando Valley and is equipped with a mobile shower unit, hot nutritious food, and clothing and hygiene items for distribution. 

 

Because there is only one mobile shower unit to service the entire San Fernando Valley, the Rescue SOS team is limited to providing showers for only 20% of the 1,500 men, women and children they serve and accommodate each month. This is where our community comes in to help. Our project goal is to raise $16,000 dollars to provide the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission – Rescue SOS program with another mobile shower unit so that the Rescue SOS team can reach out and care for more families every day.
