Long Beach Rescue Mission


What is it?

Long Beach Rescue Mission (LBRM) has served the disadvantaged and homeless of downtown Long Beach since 1972.  LBRM is composed of two facilities:  a men’s shelter, the “Samaritan House” and a women’s/children’s shelter, known as the “Lydia House”.  The ministry offers healing and hope by loving each individual and equipping them to be reconciled to God, self, family & society.

Dan Chavez

Cornerstone Lay Leader

Dan Chavez is a faithful servant of the Lord who cares for the homeless and hurting of our community by providing spiritual and physical nourishment through LBRM. He is inspired by the scripture that says "Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor." (Proverbs 22:9 ESV)


Where is it?

LBRM is located at 1430 Pacific Avenue in Long Beach.


How can I get involved?


Cornerstone teams serve at both the Lydia House (for women and children) and the Samaritan House (for men) on a regular basis.  At the Lydia House, a team serves dinner twice a month and provides crafts and recreation for all attendees. Service at the Samaritan House takes place on the fourth Tuesday of the month and runs from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., with the option to stay for chapel.
