Dining & Training Facility
This is the most recent addition to the Mission. This 10,800 sq. ft. multi-purpose
dining and training facility has a capacity to seat 300 people, which greatly
enhances our ability to provide meals to those most in need. There is a computer lab
and additional classroom space on the second floor. Also, at times when we are not
serving meals, the dining area can be partitioned into classrooms.
Shelter of Hope
Shelter of Hope, formerly known as the Women and Children's Shelter, first opened
in 1982. Designed and built by men in our residential recovery program,
it stands as a living monument to the skills and abilities that exist in the homeless
community. It currently has 42 beds availible to women and children in need of
emergency shelter and 30 beds for women in our residential recovery program. It also
houses administrative offices along with a well-equipped playroom for the children.
New Life Center
This two story, 15,000 sq. ft. building that, when at full capacity, houses 94 men.
Moreover, there are 18 emergency shelter beds dedicated for single fathers, a segment
of the homeless population that is generally underserved. There is also an educational
wing that houses a library and classrooms that give our residents the ability to
access various recovery classes, give time for personal study, prepare resumes, make
phone calls to prospective employers, and much more.
Chapel & Administrative Building
The Chapel and Administrative Building was contructed in 1991. This is where all church
services are held at the Mission. In addition, it houses our administrative offices and
The Rev. Edward H. & Beatrice G. Compton
Men's Home & Shelter
This building is the original Las Vegas Rescue Mission started in 1970 before all the
other buildings were slowly added. However, it didn't look like this in the beginning,
it didn't have a second floor and was about half its current size. It was the
chapel, kitchen, and shelter all in this tiny building. It was extended in 1978 to
accommodate a larger kitchen and a second floor was added for resident housing.
Today, with the completion of remodeling in 2011, the kitchen was removed and the
number of emergency shelter beds was increase from 46 to 110. The second floor is
used as transitional housing for residents that have completed our recovery program.
Thrift Store & Warehouse
Our Thrift Store and Warehouse is where all gift in-kind donations to the Mission are
taken and prepared for sale
inside the thrift store or given out free of charge to the
needy. This building was actually part of an old junkyard before the Mission
acquired the land west of "E" street all the way to "F" street. Needless to say, this
land and its buildings needed a lot of cleanup work. In 2006 the inside was completely
remodeled by volunteers and support provided by Harrah's Foundation.
Thrift Store Clothing Giveaway Building
Former house that was acquired by the Mission. Today, it houses our Thrift Store
Clothing Giveaway Program to help those in need of clothing in our community.
