The Rescue Mission of the Mahoning Valley is more than just free meals and overnight shelter for our overnight guests. In addition to exciting educational opportunities, the Mission provides clients with access to our licensed social worker and social work interns. Together, this team is able to assist you by overcoming barriers to employment and provide a plan for a sustainable transition when you leave the Mission.

  • Recovery counseling
  • Life skills coaching
  • Creation of a plan to transition from homelessness to rejoining the community as a productive member of society.
