Boise Rescue Mission Ministries—the faith-based charitable organization that oversees the River of Life Rescue Mission men's shelter and the City Light Home for Women and Children, both in Boise—says it is "not crying wolf" in a Monday announcement stating it's immediate need for financial assistance. The Rescue Mission, in existence for nearly six decades, doesn't accept federal or state money and depends primarily on donations.

"I want people to know that we have a large need, and I'm not crying wolf. We need some help right away," said Mission CEO Bill Roscoe in the announcement, which adds the Mission has "made every effort to be cost-efficient," but is "currently experiencing a large deficit."

The Rescue Mission currently provides shelter, meals and assistance to more than 400 men, women and children. It also serves 30 veterans in its Veterans Ministry Program, more than 40 men and women in its New Life Recovery Program and more than 50 children in its Kids Program.

The Boise Rescue Mission has created a website for its "urgent need" campaign.
