Your time can truly make a difference. 

Visalia Rescue Mission would not exist today without the help of our generous volunteers. In 2022, we were blessed with over 14,000 hours of volunteer work due to the selfless generosity of individuals like you! 

Whether it’s serving a meal, sorting clothes, leading a bible study, or being a volunteer in one of our shelters, we have a place for you!
