Goodwill Rescue Mission is entering an exciting new season!

We give thanks to you, our Goodwill Rescue Mission community, for your support that makes our life-changing work possible. With the help of supporters like you, Goodwill Rescue Mission has been helping people experiencing homelessness and hunger in Newark over 125 years. To continue this legacy of caring, we are working toward reopening to serve our Newark neighbors and meet needs that have only increased during this pandemic. Your uninterrupted support during this time of transition ensures we can provide improved programs and services.

Goodwill Rescue Mission temporarily suspended direct services at the end of March 2020. Until we are able to reopen, we have connected guests with the life-transforming services of The Bowery Mission in New York. As you may recall, Goodwill Rescue Mission and The Bowery Mission joined forces in 2016. Some guests prefer to stay in Newark, where local services can meet their needs. We want to make sure no one is displaced during this critical season.

The need in Newark is not going away, and neither is Goodwill Rescue Mission. We anticipate a bright future, and we humbly invite you to join us on this journey by continuing your support and prayers for the Mission. Your gifts today to the GRM New Hope Fund will ensure care for our neighbors experiencing homelessness in Newark for years to come.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected].

Grateful for your partnership,

James Winans

President & CEO
