About Our Ministry

Holland Rescue Mission is a shelter that seeks to meet the needs of homeless men, women, and children in the West Michigan area. We offer a wide range of Christ-driven services that address the root issues of homelessness to help restore and transform lives.

At Holland Rescue Mission, it’s our desire to see homelessness end for each person who walks through our doors. We do this by offering them a hand up, not a handout.
