Summary

Since 1953, TRM has been a beacon of hope in the Topeka and NE Kansas communities to those experiencing homelessness, hunger, poverty and many forms of trauma. In 69 years of service TRM has grown from a small facility with basic services and just a few beds, to a multi-facility organization that provides shelter, food services, housing opportunities, human trafficking and trauma interventions, rehabilitation, and education for thousands of people in need every year. Additionally TRM works closely with other community organizations to bring food, clean clothing and showers to unsheltered individuals in the Topeka area.

We believe every person who walks through our doors is loved by God, and that each day is an opportunity to change someone's life for the better. We strive to identify and help heal the root causes of homelessness and poverty, working daily to bring Help and Hope through serving those experiencing homelessness and hunger.

Mission statement

Ministering to those in need by bringing Help and Hope through serving those experiencing homelessness and hunger.


Statement of faith

We believe that the Bible is the word of God, fully inspired and without error.

We believe that there is one God who fully exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

We believe in the miraculous Virgin Birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, his sinless humanity and perfect life, his sacrificial death, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the Father's right hand and his future return to this earth in power and glory to rule.

We believe that all of humanity has fallen short of God's glory and because of our sin we are deserving of eternal punishment and separation from God. However, we believe that God loves the world so much that He gave His only Son, Jesus Christ and that whoever believes and receives God's gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, will have eternal life.

We believe that it is our commission to share the love of Jesus Christ with every person we encounter.

History

The Topeka Rescue Mission began its work in 1953 as a small room which provided shelter and food for homeless men. In 1959 a small storefront building was acquired which housed approximately 20-30 homeless men every night. In addition, a kitchen, dining room and chapel were also housed on the property. In 1964 an additional space was acquired which was utilized for offices and a thrift store. In the mid-1970's the upstairs of this facility began being utilized as a shelter for homeless women and children. In 1987 an additional building was acquired to house the Mission's thrift store which would provide free or low cost clothing and household items to the needy, as well as serving as a source of revenue for the Mission's shelters. In 1991, a new building was built to house homeless men, women and families. The Mission began housing more than 100 individuals every night. Also included in this building were kitchen and dining facilities (serving both guests of the Mission and individuals in need from the community), a chapel, medical clinic, and education space. In 1992, the old building was demolished and the space was utilized to build a playground for the children residing at the shelter to utilize. In 2000, an additional new shelter was built to house homeless women and families (over 100 individuals per night). In 2004, a Distribution Center was opened which allowed the Mission to expand their outreach to meeting the needs of the poor in the community through distribution food, clothing and other household items. In 2007, due to the increase in number of families residing at the Mission, the old playground facility was updated to meet the increased need. In 2010, the Mission continues to daily meet the needs of the poor and homeless of Topeka, KS. In calendar year 2009 the Mission housed 1922 unduplicated individuals, provided 474492 meals to people in need, and provided household items to over 4500 individuals from the community.


Program accomplishments

From providing shelter to 1,029 different individuals, to helping over 150 households obtain safe and affordable housing, to providing 475,887 meals in 2021, TRM works tirelessly to support those in need in our community.
