Rescue Mission

At the Rescue Mission, a hot meal or a warm bed can be the first step to life change. Our Food Service Center provides three free meals a day to anyone in need. Our emergency shelter offers 183 beds for men and women in eight separate dormitories. Our day center is a safe place to come in from the elements, use the phone or internet, and connect with a range of services.

Beyond meeting basic needs for food, clothing or shelter, Rescue Mission case managers help our guests to develop a plan to leave homelessness and hunger behind. As part of this effort, the Rescue Mission operates an adult home for supportive living as well as affordable permanent housing.

Read Around the Bases Reading Program

The Onondaga Flames provide libraries, elementary and middle schools the opportunity to participate in our 2018 “Reading Around the Bases” Reading Program, which is designed to encourage students to discover the joy of reading through incentive-based reading goals designed by their educators.See details here.

Onondaga Hill Fire Department

As part of our continuing efforts to support the Onondaga Hill Fire Department, the Onondaga Flames sponsor a Fire Equipment Drive to raise money to purchase needed equipment for the OHFD.

We are currently raising money to buy and automatic CPR device.
Many lay rescuers may not perform CPR as thoroughly or as properly as needed. New automated CPR devices present an opportunity for increased survival chances in sudden cardiac arrest patients.The machine is attached to the patient with a suction cup, and with a flip of a switch automatic compressions begin.This frees the rescuer to perform other life-saving duties.

This equipment costs $10,000. The Onondaga Flames have made the initial contribution of $500 leaving $9,500 more to raise.
