Orlando Union Rescue Mission

 

 

Help First Church Fight Homelessness!

Since 1948, Orlando Union Rescue Mission has been committed to bringing Central Florida’s hungry, hurting, and homeless to new life, new goals, and a new future in Christ.

Together, We Can Break The Cycle Of Homelessness In Central Florida.

The Mission provides for immediate physical needs – including food, clothing, and shelter – however, our programs are designed to lead the homeless to permanent independence built on a personal relationship with Christ. For more information about the Orlando Union Rescue Mission go to their website at https://www.ourm.org/
