The House of Prayer Rescue Mission was established in the mid-1980s to extend the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, regardless of denomination, race, or origin by reflecting basic Christian beliefs as taught in the bible.

The ministry offers a free hot meal three days per week, plus mentoring opportunities, Bible studies, prayer meetings, a community garden program, dry goods, non-perishable food items, and a worship service.

Several years ago the Helping Hands thrift ministry was added, and plans are currently underway to add a Health & Healing Center.
