A BRIEF HISTORY
In 1963, a group of Christian businessmen in the Chattahoochee Valley saw a need in the community to help the numerous homeless and addicted men on the streets. These men put together a plan to start a rescue mission.
With a vision, faith, and help from the community, an old church, and three shotgun houses were purchased on Second Avenue in Columbus, Georgia. On September 6, 1963, Valley Rescue Mission, Inc. became a fulfilled vision and the first and only rescue mission in the Chattahoochee Valley.
To guide those we serve to become productive citizens in their home, church, and community by building their lives on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to serve these men, women, and children by providing for their physical needs, promoting personal development and presenting them with the opportunity for life change through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
