The trusted leader in homeless Rescue and Recovery services since 1949

“I have traveled to many countries teaching the Word of God and assisting missionaries in the field. A former chapel speaker at the Waterfront Rescue Mission’s Mobile Campus suggested I begin teaching there several years ago, and I have been there ever since. It is a great and ongoing blessing.” – Herb, Mission volunteer


Our Mobile Mission Campus has opportunities for one-time volunteers as well as more committed volunteers called our Team 25 Volunteers. Team 25 Volunteers have specific duties which allows them opportunities to serve the Lord alongside the Mission’s staff.

Volunteers are vital to ministry of Waterfront Rescue Mission …

Volunteering at Waterfront Rescue Mission is more than simply donating time. It’s feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, encouraging the hopeless and investing your skills and abilities into the lives of others to make our community a better place to live and work for everyone – including our homeless neighbors!

For more information about how to get involved, as an one-time volunteer or as a Team 25 Volunteer, please visit our volunteer page or contact the Mission’s Volunteer Coordinator at 888-853-8655.
