The United Gospel Rescue Mission is in our community to serve our community, and the surrounding areas. Tthe Rescue Mission is ready to assist needy people in their time of need. Whether it is providing rehabilitation to an addicted man, serving a hot nutritious meal to a hungry soul, helping with utility connection fees, or aiding clients with clothing, furniture, and household goods,
Our Christian Social Services screen and aid needy families, individuals, and Senior Citizens in our community.
Our New Life Program at the Kay Porter house provides men needing help with their addictions to find a new life through a one-year, residential rehabilitation program. This program is free of charge thanks to our wonderful donors who care about others in our community.
As part of Butler County's Emergency Management Team (EMA), we have been involved in feeding over 30,000 meals during three area disasters in the last 10 years. All of this is done free of charge, and could not have happened without financial donations from you, the caring people of this community, and the hundreds of volunteers that come out for emergencies. Recently, during a major fire in the downtown area, our Director, Rev. Gregory Kirk, who also doubles as the Chaplain to the Poplar Bluff Fire Dept., was able to coordinate getting cold drinks and fresh food to the firefighters and volunteers who gathered to help our community.
The mission has also been instrumental in helping several local families touched by fire over the years. Whether it is helping find emergency housing, replacing furniture, or meeting with grieving family members over a tragic loss. Our Rescue Team is willing and able to help our community during the direst of circumstances.
