Since 1953, the Kokomo Rescue Mission has been proclaiming the Good News and demonstrating the compassion of Jesus Christ to the homeless, hungry and hurting in North Central Indiana. KRM’s mission is to see the homeless, hungry and hurting achieve wholeness through Christ-centered programs and services.
Kokomo Indiana is billed as the “City of Firsts” due to its rich heritage of inventions in the auto industry, alloy metals and the food industry. Howard County and the surrounding five county area have a long history of steady employment in agriculture, automotive, steel and alloy product manufacturing. Unfortunately, the area has also seen its share of economic struggles over the years.
The 2007-08 economic crash hit hard and while the local economy has made some recovery, the permanent loss of many high wage and professional jobs continues to impact the overall economy and create challenges for our community. There are still many people in the six county area supported by the Kokomo Rescue Mission who need to know there is hope.
At the Kokomo Rescue Mission, our staff and volunteers want to share hope, not just in the form of a hot meal, a warm night of shelter or a Red Ribbon Christmas box, but most importantly through the Good News of our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ.
