Share Hope. End Hunger & Homelessness. Change Lives. Strengthen Communities one Person at a Time.
The Rescue Mission Alliance is a nonprofit charitable organization focused on ending hunger and homelessness in Central New York since 1887.
We operate in Syracuse, Auburn, Binghamton and Ithaca with programs tailored to each community. We offer emergency shelter, meals, supportive permanent housing and employment resources to community members in need. In all of our locations, case managers help guests develop individual plans and connect with the support they need to leave homelessness and hunger behind.
In addition, the Rescue Mission operates 15 Thrifty Shopper stores in 7 counties, which help generate revenue needed annually to provide Rescue Mission programs and services to end hunger and homelessness.
