A Success Driven Program

At the Grants Pass Gospel Rescue Mission, we meticulously track the progress of our residents on an individual level. By keeping careful stats the leadership can make program and policy changes to achieve increasingly positive results. Our goal is to see our residents move from brokenness to wholeness, and from dependence to independence. The data shown below reflects the 2nd quarter of 2017 and is collected from our intake and discharge surveys.

Resident Population Makeup

Estimated 572 Total Residents Served Annually

 Men’s Residence:

During this quarter, the GRM housed 81 men with the average age being 42 years old.  The average length of stay was between 64 and 82 days.  Upon entering our residency program each resident is asked a number of questions.  The graph below reflects their answers.

 Men Leaving the Mission:

Residents leave the Gospel Rescue Mission for a variety of reasons, most often of their own choosing.  Unlike many homeless shelters, we are a program specifically intended to make homelessness something to escape from rather than something to live more comfortably with.  The majority of our residents leave on their own terms and many of them do so for all the right reasons.

Involuntary vs. Voluntary Discharge:

For the small percentage of those who are asked to leave the reasons may vary.  It’s good to remember that unless a resident has behaved violently during their stay, they will almost always have another opportunity to try us again in the future.  Change is never easy and we are committed to helping as many as we can to make those right changes.

Of the residents who checked themselves out of the Mission nearly half did so because they found housing and work.  Still, some left when they decided that they were not willing to follow our rules or policies, and many others simply left without giving a reason.  Clearly, there is still much work to be done helping others stay the course towards a life of freedom.

Women’s Residence:

During this quarter, the GRM housed 50 women with the average age being 39 years old.  The average length of stay was between 43 and 73 days.  Upon entering our residency program each resident is asked a number of questions.  The graph below reflects their answers.

Women Leaving the Mission:

Involuntary vs. Voluntary Discharge:

Of the female residents who checked themselves out of the Mission over one-third did so because they found housing and work.  Still, some left when they decided that they were not willing to follow our rules or policies, and many others simply left without giving a reason. There is still much work to be done helping others stay the course towards a life of freedom.

It may be easy to forget when looking at stats that these represent individuals – people with broken lives, hurts, and needs, whom Christ died for. Please keep our staff and residents in your prayers daily as we seek to love and serve them in Christ’s name.
