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.
“'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.
