Cookeville Rescue Mission offers temporary emergency shelter to anyone who has need of it. Many local housing and assistance programs have waiting lists for their services, which means that those who have an immediate need for help would be left in the cold if not for a temporary place to stay. That’s where we come in.
We’re open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year, including holidays, and provide regular meals, along with a devotional at 7 p.m. each evening and church services on Sunday. While our residents are here, we try to connect them with various local agencies that can provide housing assistance, job placement, health services and other social services.
