Our services are not just for those who are experiencing homelessness, they are for anyone in need in our community!
We know that times are tough and everyone has been affected by COVID-19.
Whether you are living in poverty or just struggling right now, YOU are welcome at The Rolla Mission!
Capacity: In order to comply with the governors reopening recommendations, only 24 people will be able to be inside the building at a time.
Health Screening: Anyone coming inside the building will go through a health screening first.
You will be asked the following questions:
- Do you have a fever, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, chills, muscle aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, and fatigue?
In the last 14 days, have you traveled to areas where community transmission of COVID-19 is widespread?
In the last 14 days, have you had close contact (been within 6 feet) with a suspected or laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 patient?
If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, please do not attempt to come to The Mission. Instead, reach out to a healthcare provider who can help you.
If the answer is "no" to all of the questions, then we will check your temperature. If it is below 100.4° F, you are welcome to come inside the facility for services.
Masks: You are encouraged to wear a mask. If you do not have one, one can be provided to you. All volunteers and staff must wear a mask at all times while in the building.

Community Service: People are allowed to report for community service beginning May 11th. You must do a health screening upon entering the building and wear a mask. The primary role will be sanitizing surfaces.
