Raleigh Rescue Mission is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to serving those experiencing homelessness 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 five core values of:

We embrace individuals with grace and compassion
We pray expectantly because it changes things
We adapt and work together for greater achievements
We refuse to accept status quo and actively strive for excellence
We strive to develop each other to fully live out our God given purpose

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.
