50+ years of service

Founded in 1964 by a group of concerned Christians, the Good News Rescue Mission has since offered a hand up out of emotional, physical and spiritual poverty to thousands.

What started as a 3 bedroom shelter for men has grown into a 389-bed facility offering various services to men, women and children in need. All free of charge.

Our heart for Shasta County continues to expand along with our services. Stay up to date via social media and our website on the latest developments.
