River of Life Mission (ROLM) was established in 1987 to help the homeless and near-houseless.    Those who come for services include those who are homeless, unemployed, near homeless, veterans, domestic violence survivors, elderly and uneducated.  We serve all ethnic backgrounds, national origins, religions, sexual orientations, social economic groups and ages at no charge without discrimination.

Beginning as an emergency meal center, services were expanded in 1999 to provide showers, clothing, counseling, and referrals.  Services were further enhanced through the implementation of biweekly food box distributions to local impoverished families and the elderly.  A residential program was added in 2014 to assist men and women ready to take next steps to reintegrate as self-sustaining.  Job skill training programs were added in 2016.
