Rescue S.O.S. (Survival Outreach Services)

The mission’s mobile shower S.O.S. program is a creative way to meet the needs of those living on the streets while building trust. Delivering showers and meals to where people already are helps build relationships that lead to positive steps addressing the root causes of their homelessness and a path to recovery.

We partner with area churches and currently have sites all over San Fernando Valley where our guests can take a shower, enjoy a meal, and build relationships with volunteers and members of the local church, as well as connect with a case manager. The mobile shower unit provides 10,387 showers each year, while assisting clients with services they desperately need, including haircuts, food, clothing, and hygiene products so they can have a fresh start in their day.

We refer many of our guests to service throughout the community, but many want to stay with us, the team they have learned to trust. In June of 2018, the mission was given facilities in East Hollywood from a ministry called Hope Again. We will be opening a men’s Life Recovery Program there called “Renewed Hope.”
