Mayor Steve Bach took a tour of the Springs Rescue Mission Thursday morning to see first hand the work the non-profit agency does in helping the homeless and working poor in our community. The Mission is currently undergoing a million dollar expansion to their facilities that will allow them to provide recovery and rehabilitation services to a greater number of homeless men.
Mr. Bach says he felt inspired by the volunteers and added that he wants to help the mission in its service to the community.
"We have more and more homeless people in Colorado Springs, it's a growing challenge for our community and we need places like this one doing more to help and I want to do what I can to contribute,"
The Springs Rescue Mission plans formally unveil their expansion once the work is complete in early May.
