The Shasta County region faces significant challenges of addiction, poverty, mental illness and homelessness. For over 50 years the Good News Rescue Mission has worked to serve and bring hope to people in need, while developing solutions to restore lives.
The Building Hope Campaign includes two capital projects specifically designed to increase the Mission’s Capacity to address the issues of addiction and homelessness for women and their children. The goal is to end these destructive cycles by “Building Hope” today and for future generations. The Victory House is Phase I of The Building Hope Campaign and nearly doubles the capacity of the 18 month residential Women’s New Life Recovery Program (WNLRP). Women work to break their cycle of addiction, regain their lives, and whenever possible are reunited with their children and families. Critical life skills such as parenting, job readiness and academic proficiency are essential aspects of the WNLRP. Victory House construction was completed April, 2016. Room and other naming opportunities are still available.
This emergency shelter welcomes women and children in crisis, giving them a place of refuge. Renovating the overcrowded House of Hope is Phase II of the Building Hope Campaign, and when completed, more than quadruples overnight guest capacity, providing clean, comfortable beds to homeless women and children. While the primary benefits are shelter and safety, the goal is to bring hope and restoration to their lives. The House of Hope is nearing completion and we need your help to get this much needed project across the finish line.
