Raleigh Rescue Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to serving the homeless in our community through the love of Christ.

Our Vision is to realize transformed lives and a transformed community through Christ.

We do this while holding to our six core values of:

Integrity
“But, whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.” John 3:21
Prayer
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2
Unity
“Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3
Love
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
Service
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10
Excellence
“But, just as you excel in everything – in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in your love for us – see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7

We’ve been here for almost 60 years offering hope and help to individuals who find themselves homeless and hurting. More than 750,000 men, women, and children have stepped through our doors, found shelter under our roof, and found the love of Christ in action. From a simple prayer in the lobby, to moving individuals or families through our New Life Plan, and eventually into their own home, the Mission changes lives.

We’ve been here, we’re still here, and we will stay here. We’ve seen the City of Raleigh undergo significant growth, bringing prosperity for many – but not for all. Alongside the progress there are those who suffer from homelessness brought about by trauma, domestic violence, family tragedy, job loss, addiction, or health issues, just to name a few. These are the people we serve.

We are a place with a long-term purpose. We are a place with a steadfast strategy to break the cycle of poverty and empower people to rebuild their lives.

We are here for those who need a second chance.
