Jim Palmer, President
Jim’s heart was captured at the age of 14 years old when a friend of his family’s became homeless. Jim worked tirelessly to find help for this homeless, single mother and her 7-year-old son. That motivation continues to live on today as Jim lives his calling to minister to the Least, the Last, and the Lost with Christ’s example of love and dignity. He first came to Orange County Rescue Mission, more than 28 years ago, as a volunteer painter. He quickly, thereafter, joined the staff as President of the Rescue Mission. In Jim’s spare time, he enjoys “clowning” around with the staff and has the reputation of being the official office prankster.
