About the Mission
Founded in 1970, The Las Vegas Rescue Mission (LVRM) started with a small storefront building that included the chapel, kitchen and a shelter that could house a few men. Today, LVRM campus takes up two city blocks in downtown Las Vegas, helping hundreds of men, women and children daily, and providing approximately 30,000 meals each month.
Our campus includes:
- Dining and Training Facility
- Shelter of Hope – Houses women and children
- Men’s Facility – Includes a section for single fathers with children
- A Chapel
- A Thrift Store
Having lived in Vegas since a young age and attended UNLV, it’s especially important to me and my family to continuously support our neighbors that may be less fortunate or just down on their luck for the time being. The Las Vegas Rescue Mission has been a great partner to Capriotti’s. My favorite example is Thanksgiving, our partnership with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission allows us to help ensure that even more people in the valley get to celebrate. There are many ways in which corporations can get involved with the Las Vegas Rescue Mission and organizations like theirs. I strongly urge other area businesses to participate in making our city a better place to work, live and play.
