Helping Hand for
Lost & Lonely People
The Dothan Rescue Mission is a haven of hope for the lost and lonely and who call the streets their home. We have a forty-one-year history of providing lifelines for those drowning in the waves of adversity and the undertow of addiction. We are on the street and help those in need.
We offer hot food, clean clothing, temporary shelter, and the possibility of a more abundant life. We are seeking to serve the least, the last, the lost.
