Following Jesus… Serving The Homeless

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” – Matthew 9:36

Mobile Rescue Mission, a ministry of Waterfront Rescue Mission, believes that caring for the poor and homeless is not an option; it is a mandate from the Lord. Since its founding in 1949, the Mobile Rescue Mission has been a place where those who have nothing left can find hope and experience the transforming power of Jesus Christ. What began as a refuge for wayward fishermen has grown into a full-service network of Missions that provide faith-based rescue and recovery programs that are lifting people out of homelessness, poverty and addiction. Waterfront Rescue Mission operates 10 locations throughout the Gulf Coast, including Mobile Rescue Mission, Day Resource Center, Recycling & Donation Center, and seven Bargain Centers.



The Mobile Rescue Mission was founded in 1949. Located in downtown Mobile, the Mission meets the needs of hundreds of hungry and homeless men every year. Last year more than 87,000 meals were served, over 23,000 nights of shelter were provided, and thousands of articles of clothing were distributed to those in need. A new Mobile Rescue Mission was built at 279 North Washington Avenue in Mobile, Alabama. The new campus features a new Respite Care Program and a Veterans Affairs Care Programs.
