Since the late 1800s, rescue missions have been “killing with kindness” by offering radical hospitality in Jesus’ name to those who are dealing with hunger, homelessness, abuse, and addiction. For a better understanding of how rescue missions are making a major difference in our cities throughout North America, take a few minutes and watch this informational video from the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (AGRM).
AGRM serves as the network where the leaders of approximately 300 agencies find the training, resources, and support they need to serve the individuals and families who arrive on their doorsteps every day of the year. If you would be interested in volunteering at a place like this, our website will help you find a rescue mission in your area. Our online directory is also an excellent tool if you know of someone—a friend or even a family member—who can use the kind of help that rescue missions provide.
While rescue missions in membership with AGRM incorporate the core tenets of Christianity in all aspects of their work, they are open to people of every faith or no faith. The end goal is for individuals and families to have their lives and relationships restored, and to be reengaged in meaningful ways with society.
Thank you for taking a look at rescue missions and at AGRM.
