Completed applications may be dropped off at the Kokomo Rescue Mission Office, 321 W. Mulberry St., Kokomo, IN 46901.

Office Hours: Monday-Friday 8:00 am-4:00 pm.


Kokomo Rescue Mission has always been concerned with the public health and well-being of the community. We strive to be a good neighbor and continue to provide essential services for our residential guests and public guests. Our guests and many volunteers have underlying health issues which places them at greater risk, and we are doing all we can do to provide safe facilities. Recently, we had one administrative staff member test positive for COVID-19. We have contacted the local health officials to ensure the safety of all our residential guests and volunteer guests.

Until October 5th:

· All volunteers are being asked to not report to their jobs.

· Warehouse donations will be accepted using a “No contact” drop off. There will be black bins that you may put your items into outside the warehouse.

· The Store will remain open until further notice. Monday- Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00pm.

· Our main door will be locked, if you are donating to the main office you may ring the buzzer and then leave your donation on the doorstep and we will come get them.

We are grateful that this is only the second positive test that has affected our organization since March. We ask your understanding through this time as we want to make sure that we are offering the safest environment possible for all our friends.

We are screening all that are in the mission, quarantining all that have symptoms and we are following recommended sanitation and CDC prevention; therefore,

The Howard County Board of Health approves that we continue to offer:

Grab and Go meals are available seven days a week in our parking lot

12:00 pm – 12:30 pm and 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Grocery Bag Assistance, the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month

10:00 am – 11:00 am and 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

(Photo ID required, one bag per household per week)

The Kokomo Rescue Mission is dedicated to the safety and provision of homeless in North Central Indiana and desires to communicate well with the community.

Looking for a current needs list?

We are now taking donations at the main campus ONLY.  We will make sure that the women’s shelters get the donations directed to them but need to limit the traffic at those locations.  When you are dropping off donations, please ring the doorbell by the front door (door is locked) and a staff member will meet you.  We will be updating our current needs list weekly.  If you have any questions please contact us! THANK YOU!!!
