Community Services

The homeless population in Visalia (and Tulare County) is increasing. That’s moms and dads, children and grandparents, veterans and entire families who find themselves on the streets or taking refuge along the St. John’s River edge. In 2022, more people were accessing emergency shelter beds than in 2020. Over the last 10 years, Tulare County alone has seen a 62% increase in the homeless population.*

At Visalia Rescue Mission, we provide a number of services for our community all designed to meet their current needs but to also prepare them for their future.
