14 Days of Rescue

Eugene Mission’s approach to homelessness addresses its root causes by sharing Hope and by offering programming tailored to the specific needs of each guest. Our model is called “Rescue + Revitalize + Restore” (R3).  The Path Off the Streets for our unhoused neighbors begins with access to stay in our low-barrier Rescue Shelter is in a dedicated wing of our facility where guests will be offered the opportunity to stay with Mission for 14 days to rest, shower, eat, stabilize, and receive help with other basic needs.

A Rescue Shelter stay will be capped at fourteen consecutive days per year. During those 14 days, guests will be offered the opportunity to participate in one of our Revitalization Programs – R3 Academy or Life Change – for continued shelter and services.  

During a stay at the Rescue Shelter, guests will be asked to stay on campus for the entire 14 days. Exceptions will be made for medical appointments, treatment and legal matters as well as staff-facilitated store runs and recreational activities.


The Rescue Shelter can be accessed at our west campus gate on 2nd and Chambers via a 9 am check in (or lottery if beds are limited) time.  No loitering, camping, or arrivals earlier than 8:30 am, please.

Service Animal Policy

Service Animals are welcome at the Eugene Mission.  Service animals must conduct themselves as service animals, remain leashed and with their owner at all times.  Service animals must wear current rabies vaccination tags and be licensed with City of Eugene or Lane County.

Drug & Alcohol Policy

Though, there is no testing upon entry to the Rescue Shelter, the Mission has a ZERO tolerance for drugs, alcohol or marijuana either consumed on or in proximately to the campus. No paraphernalia is allowed on site. To enter transformational programming, a clear Drug and Alcohol test is required and random tests are periodically administered.  Failure  or refusal to pass a test is grounds for dismissal.  Services will not be available to you for 1 year once dismissed from the Life Change or R3 Academy programs.
