There are many great, new things happening at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission. The Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission exists to pursue the passion of Jesus Christ to lift up the hungry, homeless, abused and addicted. What does that mean? Well, to help break the cycle of homelessness and poverty, the Mission provides a full-scale Life Recovery Program. All participants in our program have access to many services including one on one life coaching, small/large group classes, essential life skills education, and on-site medical and dental services. In addition, guests receive vocational training in various fields including merchandising, janitorial services, grounds maintenance, clerical office support, heavy machinery operation, and culinary arts. Under the umbrella of the Life Recovery Program, each guest has a chance to join a sub-program that best suits their needs. This includes the Guest Program (emergency shelter), Work Program (individuals with full-time employment), Housing Program (individuals seeking housing arrangements) or Discipleship Program (10-month long term recovery program). Each program works to provide our guests with the tools and resources they need to secure and maintain full-time employment, become grounded in Christ and succeed in independent living.
"Took a few "showers" at Walgreen's in the sink when I was homeless, pregnant, a full time student at ULL, eating one meal a day in a cold winter, wearing most of the clothing I managed to grab so that I could stay warm. Waiting for my refund check to come in so that I could abort my baby James."

That's how Danni's story started but the story doesn't end there.

Danni had no where else to turn so she reluctantly came to the Mission. Danni was a proclaimed atheist. She was disconnected from her family and did not have hope for her future. She was alone, pregnant and didn't have anywhere else to turn. All seemed lost. That was until Danni decided to join our Discipleship Program.

Danni graduated from our Discipleship Program and decided that she wanted to give back. She began to study and take college classes in theology of all things and is learning how to counsel other women in her situation. Best of all, she learned how to be the mother that James needed.

Today, Danni is a proud graduate of our Discipleship Program, claims Christ as her personal savior, has re-established connections with her family, is an incredible mother and is working full-time while going to school. Thanks to the generosity of our community not just one but two lives have been changed.
