Welcome to Waterfront Rescue Mission
No one dreams of being homeless. However, due to economic circumstances, loss of job, mental illnesses, addictions or poor choices, this nightmare becomes a hopeless reality for many. That’s where Waterfront Rescue Mission comes in. The Mission offers hope to those in need.
The staff and volunteers at the Mission recognize that the men and women who come seeking help are just like the rest of us. While some are without jobs, 44% have jobs and have children who depend upon them. Veterans who served their country with honor in times of war account for 16% of the nation’s homeless.
They are struggling to rebuild lives shattered by joblessness, foreclosure, medical bankruptcies and personal tragedies. They want to do better. But they need our support. At Waterfront Rescue Mission, faith-based principles are used to combat homelessness, poverty and addiction, to transform people from the inside out.
Our staff and volunteers truly have a heart for helping those in need. They look past the circumstances and stereotypes and see the human beings inside. They recognize the value of every person who walks through our Mobile Campus doors. It is the goal of the Mission to address a person’s spiritual and physical needs and provide services to bring about positive, permanent changes in their lives.
The ultimate goal of Waterfront Rescue Mission is to look beyond circumstances and stereotypes to address a person’s individual spiritual and physical needs by providing tools and services that bring about positive and lasting life change.
