For more than twenty-four years the Daytona Rescue Mission has partnered with individuals, churches and businesses in our community to provide help and hope to hundreds of men, women and children every year. Since 1992 thousands of meals have been provided to hungry people, clothing, counseling and other tangible services. Most important, every day – with the generous support of our partners – God is putting broken lives back together. We receive no United Way or Government funding. 

Next Step Campaign

The Daytona Rescue Mission’s Next Step Campaign will provide the resources to renovate the Mission’s facilities to dramatically expand services to the poor and homeless in our community. When completed, the Campaign will increase Daytona Rescue Mission's kitchen and dining room space, create new space to create a new 6 month practical Bible training Program. This exciting program will help men put their broken lives back together.

The goal for the campaign is $3,000.000 The project will be implemented by phases, which will be initiated as funds become available. 

Campaign Summary
Over the next few years, DRM will raise $3,000,000 to renovate existing space to vastly increase services and capacity. When the project is completed, Daytona Rescue Mission will be able provide hundreds of meals daily for hungry people, and be able to enroll over 100 men in a dynamic and effective In-house practical Bible training program. Our goal is to provide the necessary facilities that will enable our dedicated staff and volunteers to conduct effective programs to see lives transformed.
