This outreach is lead/directed by the Rescue Mission. We come alongside them giving them support. The goal is helping connect the homeless with the mission through relationships. We helped to purchase a van that they use for these outreaches. Each weekend we pray and hope that someone will turn from their homelessness and move into the Rescue Mission for a new way of life.

The Goal for Search & Rescue is:

To keep the relationship going between the Mission and the homeless community. Every weekend people just like us, you and me, are going out there to the homeless communities to show them that there's hope and that there's a bed that awaits them. Encouraging them so when they are ready, they know there is a new and better way of life.

In order for a person from the homeless community to take the step to start a different way of life, they have to first feel safe. That's why our main goal as a team is to just keep the relationship going weekly by bringing a sandwich and a smile. Our designated weekend to serve is the third weekend of every month.

**Search & Rescue Volunteers are required to create a login through the Tacoma Rescue Mission website. (TRM.ORG) Your login profile is their background check through their volunteer system. This must be done 1 week before you plan to serve. Once your login is made you can easily sign up for any volunteer spots with the Rescue Mission for any outreach! (Since you are cleared to serve after the 1 time a year check).

If you want to serve ONE TIME, there is a form to fill out instead of creating a profile to serve more than once. Email Melissa at melissa@championsfoundation.com to get the necessary form. This form should also be submitted one week prior to the date you wish to serve on.

Thank you and email our team with any questions!
