"The Atlantic City Rescue Mission is set apart by the Spirit of God to preach the Gospel and meet the spiritual, physical, emotional and other basic needs (through the provision of shelter, clothing, food, counseling, referral and structured programs) of the poor and those who are bound and bruised by addictive lifestyles in Atlantic City and the surrounding communities." (As directed in the Bible, Luke 4:18).
The Atlantic City Rescue Mission (ACRM) takes care of the physical needs of homeless people by providing food, shelter and clothing, but the purpose is always to care for the underlying causes of their difficulties. The Mission attempts to instill in its clients a sense of each individual's worth as a human being and a child of God. ACRM brings them to a point in their lives where they can be independent and self-sufficient.
