Serving El Paso Since 1952

In 1952 the Rescue Mission of El Paso was founded by Mr. H.M. Walls. The first residential building was located at 602 N. Oregon Street.

In 1958 the Green Tree Inn Hotel at 604 San Francisco Street became the new home of the Rescue Mission. This move allowed the Mission to expand its services. 

A few years later in 1964 the Mission expanded once again by purchasing the Bristol Hotel next door. 

As downtown El Paso developed in 1985, the Rescue Mission was forced to relocate and moved to 1949 W. Paisano Drive.

In 1986 the Mission opened Rescue Industries, a woodworking factory, to provide jobs for residents.  

In the early 2000's the Mission decided to close the factory to make way for Hallelujah! BBQ. This vocational rehabilitation ministry now provides jobs to residents of the Mission.

In 2016 the Rescue Mission relocated to its current location at 221 N Lee Street.
