Since 1978, Wyoming Rescue Mission has welcomed anyone from our community in need of refuge, recovery and rehabilitation. We call it "restorative hospitality" - that is, offering a nurturing, healing space where those experiencing homelessness, hunger, addiction or poverty are empowered to transform their lives through the love of Christ.

Mission statement

The Wyoming Rescue Mission restores homeless lives with the love of Christ to community independence.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, Authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three "persons:" Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Ephesians 4:4-6)

We believe in the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His substitutional and atoning death through His shed blood and sacrificial death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His present rule as Head of the Church and in His personal power and glory. (John 1:1-3)

We believe God created the world and that he uniquely created humans in his image, male and female with incredible dignity, purpose, and value. (Genesis 1)

We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful mankind, regeneration (being born-again) by the Holy Spirit through receiving Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord is absolutely essential. (John 14:6)

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (John 14:26)

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life eternal and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation. (1 Corinthians 15:51-53)

We believe in the spiritual unity of all born-again believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, as the universal church and earthly representation of Christ (Matthew 16:18), with equality across racial, sex, and class differences. (Galatians 3:26)

The Wyoming Rescue Mission (WRM) began ministering to the homeless in 1978. Founded by Rev. Munchler, Soul's Anchor, as it was then called, operated an emergency shelter from a storefront on CY Avenue. In 1991, Soul's Anchor moved into the newly acquired and renovated Park Street Hotel and opened the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission. Rev. Dan Gorman was hired as the new executive director in May of 1991.

In 1995, we purchased property across from the Park Street Hotel and placed two modular homes for the Discipleship Program, a Christ-centered transitional housing program for men. The Discipleship Program provided an opportunity to offer more in-depth services, in addition to basic emergency services. One year later, we opened Rescued Treasures Thrift Store to provide needed funding, as well as opportunities for program guests to learn valuable work skills and job readiness.

Rev. Carl Wolosin took over as executive director in 1998. The growing population of women and children in need led to the opening of the Women's Transformation Center in 2007. The Center houses the women's Emergency Services and Discipleship Recovery Programs.

Brad Hopkins was hired as the Executive Director in 2012. In 2017, we launched another needed expansion of our facilities and changed the name of our organization to Wyoming Rescue Mission.
