Mission Statement

The Westminster Rescue Mission exists to advance the Kingdom of God by proclaiming God’s Word and by partnering with local churches, businesses, social service organizations, caring supporters and volunteers in order to provide ministries of relief, rescue and other services for individuals and families in need.

Description

We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit ministry established to reach the least, the last and the lost in our community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ while helping to address the basic necessities of life. We provide a long-term, faith based, residential addiction recovery program for men.

In 2017, 90,000 lbs of surplus food was collected each month. 40 Carroll County programs receive food from us monthly. Over 17,527 adults and children have been served through the Mission's on-site pantry.

While known for its rural beauty and relative affluence, Carroll County and surrounding region is home to many thousands of families who struggle to make ends meet. We are a conduit of surplus food to other providers in this area, including local senior centers, soup kitchens, and in-school pantries. Between our on-site pantry and our re-distribution to other local service providers, we supplied over 13,500 lbs of food EACH WEEK to the unseen, unheard (and in-need) in our community.

When survival for the homeless in our community is threatened by cold winter nights, the demand for emergency shelter increases. We offer beds at the Rescue Mission as a satellite emergency overnight shelter for homeless men. This can be an important opportunity for men who are homeless and addicted to learn about our residential Recovery Program. Since we first offered this emergency shelter option at the Rescue Mission, several men have moved from homelessness into our Residential Recovery Program.
