Fresno Rescue Mission * Maroa Home

Clovis Hills has been hosting a Christmas Party at the Fresno Rescue Mission for the residents of the Emergency Family Shelter for several years and this year is no different!

A ministry of compassion…
The number of families requiring emergency shelter, not just in Fresno but in the greater Fresno County area, continues to increase. Families who have lost their home due to fire, loss of job, economic conditions or other life crises need a safe haven where they can find the resources and assistance they need to get on with their life.The Emergency Family Shelter offers 14 to 30 day temporary shelter for families, including food, clothing, personal care, referrals to other agencies that can assist them, and most importantly love and hope through the teachings of Jesus Christ. Families are given food packages and other needed supplies when they leave the shelter, to assist them in starting over in an apartment.
It is the only emergency shelter in the greater Fresno area that accepts whole family units, including father, mother and children.

The Christmas party is just one way to begin sharing the love of Jesus...pray about joining us!

The Maroa Home is a Christian discipleship program located in The Tower District of Fresno, CA. The Maroa Home has been in operation since 1984.
