Cherry Street's Mission -
Rescue. Restore. Release.
These words, along with a strong spiritual grounding, comprise the very core of the Cherry Street Mission Ministries. Even after 65 years, they continue to embrace everyone who has come in need: rescuing them from the streets, restoring their dignity, and releasing them back into the world better equipped than ever. No one is turned away.
