Task Force: Says They’re “Not Another Rescue Mission”

Members of the Community Resource Task Force are making it clear the organization will not be providing food and shelter for the homeless.

During Thursday’s meeting, members agreed they want to build a Community Resource Center to provide opportunities for people in need. The Resource Center would provide development programs for the homeless. The ultimate goal will be to help them find employment and permanent housing, but they say they do not want to be thought of as just another Rescue Mission.

“We’re pleased to announced, we’re going to be a transformational facility. We call it a campus where people can come and we’re going to help people help themselves, help the poor and the homeless help themselves that’s what we’re going to be about” said Marilyn Fenimore, Resource Development Communications spokesperson.

The Task Force are also planning to meet with the Panama City Rescue Mission’s Board of Directors to discuss future opportunities.
