Transitional Program

Clients in our Transitional Program are permitted a fixed number of overnight stays at The Mission per month.

Basic services provided include food, shelter, clothing, overnight provisions, limited social service casework, personal information entered in Homeless Management Information System (HMIS).


Two full meals are served daily to the public at our Emergency Shelter located at 962 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Youngstown


The Mission turns no one away who is need of a warm bed for the night. During our severe Ohio winters, The Mission has literally been a lifeline for those with nowhere to seek shelter. We provide three full meals to everyone staying at the shelter.

Individuals and families who stay at The Mission, whether just for a night or for longer periods, find that life there is orderly and filled with purpose. The Mission has firmly established rules and regulations concerning on-site provisions for our clients.

The Mission is a drug-, alcohol- and tobacco-free environment. Residents and Staff are subject to random testing for all three. Further, everyone staying at The Mission has a daily work assignment, with designated areas of responsibility and accountability throughout the facility. Privileges and penalties are applied without bias.

The Rescue Mission of Mahoning Valley  provides non-denominational chapel services and Bible studies. Residents are encouraged to learn more about Jesus Christ and His teachings on love, compassion and mercy.

If you are in need of emergency shelter or know of someone who is, please call 330-744-5485 and ask for a Client Advisor.
