Almost 1 in 5 people in Kokomo live below the poverty level. In Howard County, 1 in 6 people — including almost 1 in 4 children — regularly go hungry. And there are hundreds of homeless individuals and families throughout North Central Indiana.
The Kokomo Rescue Mission is here for the homeless, the hungry, and the hurting. Since 1953, we have provided help and hope through emergency assistance and long-term programs that touch the mind, body, and soul. All in Jesus’ name.

Our Programs

Kokomo Rescue Mission has programs for men, women, and children. We work compassionately with our guests to meet their short- and long-term needs—physically, mentally, and spiritually.
