Frequently Asked Questions

I need a place to stay, are you a shelter?

Unfortunately, we only provide shelter from June through April. Our goal is to become a year round shelter eventually. During the day, you're free to rest your head on our recliners. 

Who can stay overnight?

Anyone who doesn't have a roof over their head is welcome to stay when we are open overnight.

Do you screen people who use your services?

No, we do not screen anyone who uses our services. We have security cameras all around the facility, as well as volunteers and staff that ensure the safety and security of The Rolla Mission.

Do you provide Financial Assistance?

No we do not. We provide immediate needs, such as food, shelter, and laundry. We are happy to make referrals to resources that do provide financial assistance. 

Do you need volunteers?

Is there anything you urgently need donated?

Our list of Frequently Used Items is regularly updated. Please check it out and help where you can!

Can I bring in a meal from home?

Because we are a public establishment that serves food, we have to adhere to health and safety codes. This means we can only accept meals that were prepared in a kitchen or facility that is inspected by the Health Department.

Can I plan a fundraiser for you?

Of course! Contact us at therollamission@gmail.com or call (573)308-5474 to get it set up!

Do you offer vouchers of any kind?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide vouchers at this time. For gas vouchers or financial assistance, we recommend going to G.R.A.C.E.

Do you accept clothing donations?

We can accept donations of in-season clothing that is appropriate for our patrons. Due to limitations of storage space, we cannot accept suits, dresses, or off-season clothing. Please take donations of those items to either The Salvation Army or The Community Partnership Resale Shop.
