Goodwill Rescue Mission is one of New Jersey’s oldest faith-based rescue missions. For more than 120 years we’ve been providing meals, shelter, and other life-saving services to neighbors experiencing homelessness, hunger and other crises in Newark and Northern New Jersey.
We partner with local leaders, churches, corporations, schools, and compassionate people just like you to demonstrate God’s love by first meeting the immediate needs of our neighbors experiencing homelessness and hunger. We work hard to make sure these neighbors have free access to basic needs and emergency services. And for those looking for a change, we give them access to faith-based residential recovery programs for men and women, where lives are restored to dignity and lasting productivity. Ultimately, we want these services to be an encouragement to them to experience God’s love and dare to hope for a life of purpose and lasting productivity.
