Bay Area Rescue Mission, Richmond, CA

BARM collage
The Rescue Mission helps meet the basic needs of hurting and homeless men, women, and children in the Bay Area with food and a clean, safe place to sleep. Men, women and children are encouraged to find long-term relief from homelessness at the Rescue Mission through extensive, residential discipleship programs. After graduation from the Discipleship Program, Transitional Housing is made available.
The Rescue Mission’s Culinary Arts program provides on-the-job training and career opportunities in the food service industry.Last year the Rescue Mission provided over 1,500,000 meals to needy men, women and children. Our program residents are able to work in the kitchen environment and train for employment in the food service sector. We maintain a strong collaboration with Contra Costa College’s Culinary Arts department which provides college credit to our culinary arts students.
The goal of the Rescue Mission’s Food Pantry & Distribution Center is to keep people from becoming homeless by distributing food, clothing, furniture and other household items. Our Mobile Outreach team travels twice a week to visit the chronic homeless in parks and encampments throughout the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. Through our Youth Outreach Program, the Rescue Mission works to prevent homelessness by giving children and teenagers from inner-city schools the academic, emotional and spiritual resources they need to succeed.
