The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission would like to extend its most sincere thanks to its Board of Directors for their willingness to take on the mantle of servanthood to help the homeless and hurting in our community. Our board and our staff are truly called of God to be servants who are used to help the Rescue Mission deliver needed programs and services. In all our ways, skills, talents and gifts, we strive to exemplify the characteristics of God, in whose image and likeness we were created.

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them–not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve.” I Peter 5:2
