New York City Rescue Mission

NYC Rescue Mission - Logo 

Founded in 1872, the New York City Rescue Mission (NYCRM) was America's first rescue mission. The purpose of the mission has been the same for 130 years: to provide spiritual hope, food, clothing and shelter to the destitute who arrive on their doorstep. The Mission provides shelter, job training, GED and education classes, drug recovery, casework services, computer skill training, and more.  Volunteers can help distribute groceries through the food pantry, lead a worship service, help with their job readiness programs, provide GED tutoring, and more.
