What We Do

Rescue. Recovery. Restoration.

Meeting basic needs today. Giving hope for tomorrow.

We’re here to help hurting people in Central Iowa

Every day hurting people in Central Iowa are without safe, stable housing. Many don’t know how they’ll get their next meal. Abuse, addiction, incarceration and other painful circumstances have shattered their confidence and independence. We are here to help.

Our rescue services offer safe shelter, nutritious meals, free clothing and more, and our long-term life recovery programs are meant to break the cycles of homelessness, abuse, addiction, incarceration and chronic poverty. Every day we’re meeting the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of men, women and children! 

Free Community Meals

We serve hundreds of free meals each day to anyone in the community.

Men’s Shelter

We provide short-term shelter for homeless men at Bethel Mission (1310 6th Avenue).

Life Recovery Programs

Our residential, long-term life recovery programs for men, single women and mothers with children work to break the cycles of homelessness, abuse, addiction, chronic poverty and other struggles.

Hope Ministries Thrift

Our thrift stores offer reasonably priced new and used clothing, furniture and household items at two locations in Des Moines.
