Our History

Hope Rescue Mission was originally founded in 1999 as Union Gospel Mission of Missoula.  What began as a ministry to serve meals to those experiencing homelessness under Higgins St. bridge in Missoula quickly grew to include a day center and later added a men’s recovery program. 

More than 20 years later, what is now Hope Rescue Mission, continues to serve those experiencing homelessness, meeting the needs of many in our community through Hope Outreach, 549-HOPE, Hope Thrift Boutique, and The Grace House.  While the ministries have grown, our mission still remains the same–help people, restore hope, change lives. 

Our Approach

What is Incarnational Ministry?

We are to be witnesses of Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit. We are not in it for us, our reputation, our church, or our organization. We are in this for Him, and those He loves. That said, if we do this His way, we will build a good reputation for Christ to be seen. We are not the “saviors”, we are the witnesses of The Savior.

This is where it all starts. Jesus became flesh “carna” and lived among us. He climbed into our world. This is one of the most incredible parts, and yet the starting part of the Gospel. John 1:14. Therefore, we are to go and climb into their world, where they are, how they are, who they are – not to change, but to give witness, by simply being with. A power of our witness is our “withness”.
