Cookeville Rescue Mission

In God’s Service 24/7

For 40 years, the nonprofit Cookeville Rescue Mission has provided emergency, temporary shelter for the homeless. Offering two residential buildings plus a chapel, general store, salon and dental clinic, the Rescue Mission offers assistance lasting from three to 30 days for men, women and families in need. The Rescue Mission also operates Step Upward Farm, a seven-acre working farm that offers a three- to nine-month program designed to help young, troubled fathers turn their lives around.
