Homelessness is a complex problem. The circumstances that bring people to the Mission’s doors are nearly as diverse as the people themselves. Some have lost everything, including their dignity. Some have endured abuse and violence since childhood. Some have succumbed to depression and addiction.
Many people think of Waterfront Rescue Mission as just an overnight shelter, feeding and housing the homeless. However, we have locations across the Gulf Coast including the Waterfront Thrift Stores in Mobile and Foley, Ala. The Mission and its ministries address each person’s specific issues by providing personal, local solutions such as rescue and recovery programs, as well as veterans’ care and a Recuperation Dorm.
While the issues that bring people to us vary widely, at its root, homelessness means hopelessness to so many. However, with the support of generous donors like you, Waterfront is able to offer them hope and so much more. Through giving, you help provide the encouragement, stability, and support they need to get back on their feet and onto a life of self-respect and self-sufficiency.
