Our clients come from all over the county to find help feeding and clothing their families. We give as we have been given and we are open five days each week from 9:30 to 2:30 pm. We have not and will not consider selling any items donated to us for the needy. We will only send our newsletter to those who request it. We never buy or sell our mailing list.

Our History

Jefferson County Rescue Mission was founded in 1978 by Mike and Louise Sardo, They had seen a need for a rescue mission ministry in Jefferson County. The closest ministry similar to what they felt was needed was thirty-five miles away. After much prayer and consulting with area pastors, the Sardos opened their home to house men who needed help and hope. Bro. Mike has since gone home to heaven, but Miss Louise Sardo at age 94 continues to volunteer at the Rescue Mission five days each week. Despite being born blind, Mrs. Sardo has a special ability to see into the hearts of folk in need. While we no longer are able to house people we still distribute food and clothing to anyone in Jefferson County, MO who has a need.

Our Foundation

We are a Christian organization that ministers to people of all faiths and religions. We believe that the Bible is the very Word of God. It reveals that salvation is available to anyone who repents of sin and by faith accepts the gift of God offered to all who believe that the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ purchased for us the gift of eternal life. Several passages of Scripture help us to understand this salvation is not of our works, but is a gift of God. John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Romans 10:9-10, Titus 3:4-5 and Ephesians 2:8-10 are especially helpful in understanding God's part in our salvation.
