Just three words…but these words bring more than 5,000 men and women through the doors of Knox Area Rescue Ministries every year. Since 1960, KARM has helped men and women struggling with homelessness, poverty and addiction to pick up the broken pieces and build a better life—one with a home, job, and loving relationships; a life that is healthy, whole, restored.

Restoring lives in Jesus’ name. That’s the ministry KARM is in 24/7/365.
