Good Samaritan Rescue Mission of Bay City is part of a network of facilities that includes City Rescue Mission of Saginaw and Community Village, all operating under the DBA of Rescue Ministries of Mid-Michigan (R3M). R3M is guided by a fifteen-member Board of Directors that represents a variety of denominational and vocational perspectives. Members are elected to a 3-year term, meet quarterly, and are charged with all matters of operational policy. These dedicated volunteers become personally involved in hands-on projects and in developing opportunities with potential donors, volunteers, businesses, and churches. We are constantly grateful for their guidance and service.
