Founded in 1878, we have reached out to the homeless in Philadelphia for more than 140 years. Originally named the Sunday Breakfast Association, our name was changed a few years ago to reflect our expanded services as a Rescue Mission. Rescue Missions are similar to a traditional homeless shelter, but focus on caring for the spiritual needs in addition to the practical needs of people.

Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission serves those experiencing homelessness in Philadelphia.  The Mission offers an array of homeless day services and clinics to men and women.  Additionally, the Mission has a 30- day men’s emergency shelter, offers a 12 month transitional housing program to men, and a permanent supportive housing program for men 65 years of age and older.  The Mission relies on the generous contributions of caring individuals, families, churches and businesses.


Our Identity Statement

We advance our mission of transforming lives by the power of God and seek to activate God-given potential by serving homeless, hungry, and hurting adults in Philadelphia through loving, compassion-based programs and services.  Emphasizing our competitive advances of an authentic Christian community experience, lowest-barrier entry, and safe space focused on excellent programs and partnerships, we are sustainable by the faithful stewardship of resources provided by the generosity of God’s people through our donors.
