Serving the Poor and Homeless of Newark Since 1896.

Goodwill Rescue Mission empowers the poor, homeless, and addicted of Newark to encounter Christ through compassionate care and comprehensive life transformation that meets immediate needs and encourages many to dare to hope for a life of dignity and dedication to being a contributing member of their community.

The Reality

Not unlike many areas across the country, our community is experiencing an epidemic of homelessness, addiction, poverty and despair. Discover the facts about these afflictions.

Our Response

Through our comprehensive programs of Compassionate Care and Life Transformation, broken and despairing individuals can dare to hope for a life of dignity and meaning.

Your Impact

We rely on the compassion of community partners to restore hope and reshape lives. We offer meaningful ways to come together in prayer, fellowship and financial assistance to provide a foundation of support for our ministry.

A Place of Peace

“'With everlasting kindness I will have compassion on you,' says the Lord your Redeemer.”
– Isaiah 54:8


Our chapel here at the Mission is a place of peace and safety, a true sanctuary for those looking for refuge from the danger and loneliness of the streets.

Every day, words of encouragement and hope are offered to men and women seeking basic necessities.

You wouldn't think that in today's world, people would have to fight for food and shelter. But they do. Every day, homeless and struggling neighbors come to Goodwill Rescue Mission for the help they need just to make it through another day.

For many, the Mission is their last hope when they have given up hope. Imagine what would happen to North Jersey's most vulnerable if you did not make it possible for the Mission to be here.

In our chapel, many hurting neighbors experience the peace of God for the first time — or in a long time! At the Mission, they find a meal, safe shelter, helpful resources, and the hope of a fresh start.

Our outreach to the homeless and hurting in North Jersey is only possible because of the love and sacrifice of many people. We couldn't do without the faithful support of friends like you. You help make the Mission a place of peace.

Thank you for your sacrificial giving!
