We are commissioned by our Lord to help the poor and needy not only when it is convenient, but when the needs arise. Therefore in our community of East Texas we hear the cries of the alcoholic, drug addicted, and the single woman or mother who has suffered from domestic violence that does not have an advocate. We share the pain of the family that is living in their car, under a bridge or in the near-by wooded area. Hiway 80 Rescue Mission has been reaching out and touching these lives for over 65 years. Our community has also heard their cries and has come alongside of us so together we can begin to make a difference.
