About Cherokee County Rescue Mission

Cherokee County Rescue Mission is a safe emergency shelter for men,  women, and mothers with young children that provides food, shelter, clothing and compassion for those experiencing homelessness.  Men and women are housed in separate dormitory-style wings.  The Crisis Shelter Program provides short-term services for guest who desire only temporary shelter.  More in-depth services are provided through the New Life Program for guests who seek more comprehensive care.  With the help of our counselors and case managers, we aim to move guests toward stability and healthy relationships.  Services provided include educational opportunities, basic life skills, discipleship, and free medical help through New Horizons.

Donate Supplies

People in our shelters usually arrive with very few personal possessions—if any at all. You can help meet their basic needs by donating items such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo, and other things directly to this shelter. Before you donate, we ask that you contact the shelter directly to determine our most current needs.
