Our Mission Statement

We seek to rescue the poor and needy of the Knox area by providing recovery services in Jesus’ name.

Since 1960, KARM’s volunteers, donors and staff have answered the call to restore lives in Jesus’ name. We pursue this mission using the same ministry formula Jesus used:


He rescued us. He longs for a relationship with us. He uses that rescue and growing relationship to restore us to God, to self, to family and to community.

“To bear sins means to go where the sinner is…to devote oneself to his recovery and follow him with ceaseless ministry, knowing he cannot be recovered without his consent…and his consent may be indefinitely withheld.”.
