Dear Friends,

As you read this, I am closing in on six months with Fort Collins Rescue Mission. It has been a blessing! I have been asked a lot what has impressed me the most—my answer is seeing how God is working in and through this ministry.

God is working in and through you, our donors, our prayer warriors, our volunteers, and our staff to do great things in the lives of the people we serve. Praise God for the Mission.

Throughout my career working in this space I have often wondered, ‘What if we were not here?’ That is not to say that we are the only ministry or organization doing great work— there are so many others! But what is it about the Mission?

Last year we helped over 150 individuals obtain housing and are on track to help even more this year! Countless people voluntarily found faith or grew in their faith. Dozens graduated from our rehabilitation program, clean and sober. We offered more than 60,000 nights of shelter and served over 107,000 meals.

Simply put, the work of this ministry could not be done without you, your prayers and your financial support. I am grateful that the Mission is here, and that God has called us to carry out this work together to make a difference one life at a time!

Dennis Van Kampen, President/CEO

Grace and Peace,
