The staff and volunteers at the Mission have learned, from nearly 70 years of hands on experience, that the people seeking Mission services really aren’t all that different from the rest of us. They have families, responsibilities, hopes and dreams and are determined to do whatever is necessary to experience positive and lasting change in their lives.
While some are unemployed, 44% have jobs and are doing what they can to support themselves and the families they love. Approximately 16% are U.S. veterans who have valiantly served our country and need assistance accessing military benefits and permanent housing. Some simply need a safe place to stay while recovering from medical procedures or while applying for other qualifying benefits. Others have debilitating health issues and need help connecting with appropriate resources.
Waterfront Rescue Mission helps people address the challenges of life-dominating issues. Healing and restoration are the goals of our Bible-based program that helps develop self-sufficient, productive members of our community.
