Tue 8 AM | Redding Mission Offers Bus Tickets To Homeless People

Nov 13, 2017

Communities all over the country look for ways to get people off the streets. 

Homelessness persists, despite--or perhaps because of--an improving economy. 

One answer that works on a local level is to get homeless people out of town, literally. 

Good News Rescue Mission in Redding is one of several agencies that provide transportation to send homeless people from Redding back to places where they have a support network. 

More than 100 people have used the program since the mission began offering it three years ago. 

Mission Executive Director Janet Shields provides details on how it works.
