Grant County Rescue Mission

About Our Organization

Grant County Rescue Mission began in 1985 when a several compassionate people in the community, led by Reverend Charles Cooper, felt a passion to help hungry and homeless neighbors in need.

Together, they purchased the building at 423 S. Gallatin Street in Marion, formerly owned by the telephone company. A thrift store on the second floor funded their efforts. Within a year, they began sheltering a few men and feeding around 20 people at dinner each day.

Since that humble beginning, the Mission has stood as a beacon of hope to hurting people in crisis. Continued public support has helped the Mission expand programs for meals, addiction recovery and transitional housing.
