The Tacoma Rescue Mission continues to provide crucial services to men, women and children experiencing homelessness in our community during this uncertain time. 

There’s been a dramatic increase in the number of people who need our help. At the same time, we face increased challenges that require changes to how meals, shelter and other essential resources are now provided. These changes have resulted in a huge surge in costs.

During this difficult time, it is crucial that we all stand together and come alongside individuals and families who have the fewest resources to cope with COVID-19. 

Visit the links below for the Mission’s response (updated: May 19, 2021) and the many ways you can help during this rapidly evolving crisis.
