General Information:
Sam Reynolds was dedicated to providing a place where transient and homeless men could find food, clothing and shelter, and hear the message of salvation. His vision to "rescue the perishing" was fulfilled in 1971 when Bessemer Rescue Mission opened in a rented building on Fourth Street. Rev. Gerald Price, a brick mason by trade, was appointed the first chairman of the board.With the help of his friends, Rev. Price constructed a 5,000-square-foot facility, which included a chapel, dining room, kitchen, clothes closet and dorms to house 18 men. During the next 20 years, the Mission expanded its facilities to care for more homeless men and to meet their increasingly complex needs. Then in 1992, a duplex on Sixth Avenue was purchased to provide shelter for homeless women. Fees may apply for this Transitional Housing resource.
