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.
Serving the homeless and poor thanks to your generosity
One of the things I am most grateful for in my role as Executive Director of Goodwill Rescue Mission is that I get to witness the generosity of the NJ community.
Recently, we have been blessed with the support of Servant’s Heart, a ministry of Cornerstone Christian Church. They show how you can share God’s love and “preach” good sermons by serving the least of these.
With complete selflessness, a group of dedicated volunteers are providing highly skilled construction labor to build capacity with our very limited resources. I am amazed by these men coming to work with us every Saturday, after they have worked all week at a full time job!
Servant’s Heart is helping us with the renovation of our old thrift store and warehouse space, for which we have big plans! Their work will enhance our capacity to minister to our neediest neighbors with vouchers for fresh, clean clothes, and offer employment opportunities for men in our life transformation program. It will also provide new partnership opportunities to engage with our community that will help sustain our work.
I look forward to sharing with you the progress of this project and how God uses this space to bless the poor among us.
For every meal and every night of shelter you help provide, I am grateful!
