The Rescue Mission Alliance is a Christian Non-Profit organization ministering to the needs of the less fortunate in Southern California through emergency and long-term rehabilitation services.
The Rescue Mission Alliance has served the homeless for more than 43 years. It has grown from the first location on 6th Street in Oxnard to multiple locations in four counties throughout Southern California. Several distinct programs are offered at multiple locations, which provide a "Full Range of Care" for addressing the needs of the hungry, homeless, and destitute.
While the Rescue Mission Alliance is a Christ-centered organization, we are not a church. We recognize the need to join forces with the local churches of Southern California in order to provide spiritual nurturing and discipleship that is required for real hope and change in the lives of the people we serve. Many of our program participants and transient guests find regular churches to attend through outreach activities.
I was scheduled for (2) interviews and changed my schedule so I could meet with the Volunteer Cord. for the Lighthouse Greeter. She called me and stated she had enough volunteers for that position do you want to help serve?
I serve once a month at a Homeless Shelter I did not want to do that on a weekly basis. I wanted to help Women and the volunteer cord. left me hanging, called me that day to say oh the positions have been filled.
If you go to this place thrift store or otherwise they don't treat their volunteers very nice, at least not me.
I have taken them off my donation list for items also. They do not have the positions that they advertise for?
I think they need classes in how to deal with great volunteers!
