Peoria Rescue Ministries


Peoria Rescue Ministries

601 SW Adams St, Peoria IL

In 1955, Florence Holzschuh and Helen Durdel served donuts and coffee to homeless men in Peoria while standing in a storefront. Soon after, they met with the Ministerial Association, to enlist help for housing homeless men. In 1968, that Rescue Mission finally found a home – on Southwest Adams. The present standing building was constructed in 1985, and Peoria Rescue Missions has expanded to include a Women’s Pregnancy Center, Victory Acres, and Esther House. The neon “Jesus Saves” sign calls those in need of help to come receive ministry and aid.
