Mission statement

Because of our love for and obedience to God, our mission is to mobilize the community to provide Housing, Health and Work services.

Statement of faith

Springs Rescue Mission uses the Nicene Creed as its statement of faith:

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered, died, and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

In 1995, God filled Paul and Marilyn Vyzourek with a desire to serve the poor, hungry and homeless neighbors of Colorado Springs. In 1996, their ministry grew into a small, one-room food pantry - and Springs Rescue Mission was born.

For years, the small nonprofit focused on feeding the hungry. But in 2013, God made a way for SRM to open a small winter shelter with room for 37 men and women. It started with a meal and quickly became a movement of hope that would change how our community helps those in need.

The "Community of Hope" capital campaign was launched to fulfill a God-given dream of creating an extensive homeless resource campus in Colorado Springs. We envisioned it as a place where neighbors struggling with homelessness, hunger, poverty, addiction or food insecurity could come to address their legitimate need for housing, health and work.

In just five short years, our city and supporters have helped us raise $16 million to create a Campus of Hope. Donor support has created some of the nation's most innovative programs and built facilities that are transforming lives.
