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 homeless and hurting men, women and children 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 homeless and hurting neighbors. We work hard to make sure our neighbors suffering from poverty and homelessness 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.
