Knox Area Rescue Ministries provides daily for those most vulnerable and desperate among us, first supplying rescue services of food and shelter, then healthy, supportive relationships, and ultimately restoration, including job-training opportunities. We believe that rescue begins when someone comes through our doors with all their brokenness on display. We then offer safe shelter, a warm meal, and overwhelming biblical hospitality. When rescue is combined with the support and encouragement provided by healthy relationships that reflect the heart of Jesus - Jesus, who spent his earthly ministry investing in 12 individuals who in turn invested in others - then true restoration can occur...restoration to God, self, family, and community. KARM serves nearly 1,000 meals per day, feeding not only the homeless, but many in crisis who must choose between food and other basic needs. KARM's emergency and residential shelter for men, women and families are home to nearly 400 people each night, providing a safe place of encouragement to those in need.
