Knox Area Rescue Ministries provides daily for those most vulnerable and desperate among us, first supplying rescue services of food and shelter, then recovery and restoration, including job-training opportunities. We serve an average of 1,200 meals a day, feeding not only the homeless, but many in crisis who must choose between food and other basic needs. KARM is home to over 400 men, women, and children each night. We are the only emergency shelter in East Tennessee that provides housing for families with children under the age of 18.
