“I thought I came to the pantry for physical food, but my starving spirit was seeking all that those I encountered were planting and sowing and watering. My thirsty soul began to come to life.” Mike, a transformed participant in the 2013 Life Recovery Program
The Victor Valley Rescue Mission (VVRM), located in Victorville, California, became an outreach of the Rescue Mission Alliance in 2008. VVRM provides vital services to the Victor Valley’s poor and homeless through its impactful programs: Rescue S.O.S. (Survival Outreach Services), an emergency Food Pantry, Hot Shower program, Winter Warming Shelter, and a Men’s Life Recovery program.
Annually, VVRM provides healthy food for food-insecure families living at or below the federal poverty level through more than 33,712 meals served at community dinners five days per week at two Victorville locations and and 5,176 food boxes.
Terry L. came to us because he was cold and tired. Two volunteers told him about the recovery program. He not only entered our program, he turned himself in for a probation violation, returned after serving 20 days, and graduated this January. He now volunteers at the warming shelter.
