Every day as the sun rises and sets over the valley, the San Fernando Valley Rescue Mission is changing lives for good.
Nights of Shelter
Last year we provided more than 15,700 nights of safe, warm and comfortable sleep at our family shelter.
Meals Served Last Year
FEEDING THE HOMELESS
A warm meal nourishes the body, mind, and soul and can make all the difference in the world. We serve hot, nutritious meals on-site and around the valley.
Articles of Clothing
In conjunction with our SOS mobile shower and our thrift program we are able to offer guests the option of selecting fresh clothing when they stop in for a shower.
SOS SHOWER TRUCK
Sometimes something as simple as a hot shower can restore an individual’s dignity. The SOS shower truck reaches individuals throughout the valley.
