Since 1899, the Boston Rescue Mission has been transforming the lives of underprivileged urban men and women. Volunteers and staff at our 39 Kingston Street location in downtown Boston meet women and men at risk of hunger, homelessness, addiction, and incarceration at their point of greatest need, including:
- People living on the edge of homelessness benefit from our daily meal programs and weekly food pantry. When food is provided to folks with scarce resources, those resources may be used toward rent, utilities, or medical care expenses instead.
- Our overnight shelter program provides meals, showers, and warm, safe beds for adult men with nowhere else to go.
- Our in-house transition programs provide individualized case management and life and vocational skills development for women and men coming from detox and years of addiction or women from Massachusetts state prisons.
- U.S. veterans who are homeless are welcome in our transitional housing program in Dorchester as they seek permanent housing.
Your support provides hot meals for hungry families, warm, safe beds for those without a home, and life-transforming programs for those who are desperate for a second chance.
