For over a decade, the Bread of Life Rescue Mission has been serving the needs of our neighbors who are hurting, hungry, and homeless. We primarily serve a six-city area comprised of Oceanside, Vista, Carlsbad, San Marcos, Escondido, and Encinitas.
Year round we provide warm evening meals, food boxes, clothing, personal care items, and referral services. Additionally, we offer our guests spiritual encouragement and facilitate new beginnings.
As a California non-profit religious organization, we provide a nurturing and safe environment that is drug and alcohol free.
We are a designated City of Oceanside cold-weather over-night shelter open annually from November 1 through March 31.
Our client advocates work together with our shelter guests to lay out specific plans geared towards their individual needs along with referral and tracking systems to help them accomplish their goals. Our services include mandatory drug and alcohol testing. We offer referral assistance to substance abuse programs and sober living facilities.
