We focus on Rescue Missions because they offer MUCH MORE than just a place to sleep or a hot meal.
Being homeless can happen to anyone, anytime. Sometimes it’s a result of circumstances beyond our control — loss of job, divorce, domestic violence, mental illness, medical bills, eviction. Sometimes it’s a result of one’s own poor choices, which is most often, substance abuse.
The Rescue Missions often offer Christ-centered programs and services to help men, women, and children escape hunger and homelessness. They also offer Addiction Recovery, Emergency Services, Shelter, Domestic Violence Shelters, Solutions for Employment, and most of all they center it all around the love of Christ.
We include the address of the local rescue mission in each city that we hand out the BYM Bags. We want to plant seeds and lead people to the help they need with resources, meals, programs and even just a friendly face, and to be sure and let them know it’s BECAUSE YOU MATTER!
For each donation BYM Bags receives, we give 10% to Rescue Missions around the country. God has blessed us with the opportunity to share BYM bags with the homeless and those in need, in Portland, OR – Phoenix, AZ – Arlington,TX – Las Vegas, NV – Chicago, IL – Holland, MI- and San Diego, CA.
We appreciate your continued prayers and with helping us plant seeds and share the Love of Christ one BYM Bag at a time. We want everyone to know they matter to us, and most importantly they matter to God.
Everyone needs to hear that God SO LOVED the world, He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the Cross for us. There is JOY in knowing Him. He is here to be our comfort and Strength.
The LORD hears his people when they call to Him for help. He rescues them from all their troubles.
“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
