CVRM Ground Breaking Ceremony
December 2010

The Ground Breaking Ceremony for the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission-CVRM was held Wednesday, 12/8 for their BUILDING NEW BEGINNINGS project in Indio. Orr Builders is the General Contracted in charge of building this 43,013 sq. ft. facility (206,810 sq. ft. total site area). The new facility will consist of two single-story buildings for their Administrative offices, classrooms for GED programs, counseling rooms, a computer lab, a playground, kitchen/dining area, and housing facilities for men and a separate facility for woman and children.

The mission will help hungry and hurting people with new beginnings with this new facility which will house 150 men, woman and children. (The current facility is capable of housing 80 people at the most). Their goal for every individual coming to the mission is to practically share the love of Jesus with food, shelter and a hope for a new beginning in life. A larger dining room and kitchen will give necessary space to feed two daily public meals and store and distribute food boxes that are distributed to families in need.

Since 1971, CVRM has been an oasis, a place of refuge for the homeless and needy in our valley. Over the years the mission has continued to meet the ever growing needs of individuals, who for a variety of reasons have found themselves without the basic necessities of life. A dedicated staff and volunteers serve more than 80,000 hot meals annually and provide shelter to thousands of men, women and children. Food, clothing, and showers are also provided for those who do not shelter with the mission.

As you well know, On March 11, 2009 a fire in the laundry room at the current mission location, which is across the street from the new building project, caused major damage, but thankfully no one was hurt. The Team at Orr Builders stepped in to rebuild the shelter in a record 28 days.

"A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor" Proverbs 22:9
