About Hiway 80 Rescue Mission

Loving Others as Christ Commanded

In 1955 the Hiway 80 Rescue Mission was established to provide food and shelter, and to share the gospel with homeless men in Longview. Over the 65 years we’ve been in existence God has helped us grow this ministry to include an emergency shelter for women and families. We feature Christ-centered recovery programs, and community outreach services. Through the New Creation Discipleship and New Directions Discipleship programs, we teach people about Christ’s love and commands, arming them with the tools they need to overcome addictions, abusive situations, and many other difficulties they face in life. After completing the 10-month program, services are provided to assist them with achieving self-sufficiency.
