March 2017 - Milwaukee Rescue Mission

March Hero of the Month:
Milwaukee Rescue Mission

We are honored to present the Milwaukee Rescue Mission as our Hero of the Month for their commitment to providing love, compassion, education and nourishment of body, mind and spirit to Milwaukee’s neediest citizens.



Since 1893, the Milwaukee Rescue Mission has served homeless and hurting men, women and children in Milwaukee by providing meals, shelter, transformative programs and spiritual development and enrichment. Each year, they provide almost 300,000 meals, 95,000 nights of shelter and 44,000 items of clothing to those in need—thanks to friends like you!

Here is their Mission Statement: "In response to God's grace through Christ, we compassionately serve men, women and children who are homeless, hungry or poor to help them become whole in body, mind and spirit for the glory of God. "...whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40


Safe Harbor (For Men)
The men’s programs at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission gives their guests the strength and support to transform their lives. Educational and vocational counseling, addiction recovery programs, biblical instruction, and life-skills training give them another chance at a future brimming with potential.

Joy House (for women & children)
The women and children who come here for emergency or long-term support rely on the safety, love and warmth of Joy House and its many services. They are nourished and nurtured through training, education and spiritual guidance so they can make better lives for themselves — and for their kids.


Equip (helping families)
Equip strengthens families through education and resources to help them become stable physically, emotionally and spiritually.


Child Enrichment Center (daycare for kids)
The Milwaukee Rescue Mission's Child Enrichment Center offers safe, nurturing and age-appropriate childcare for children ages four weeks through four years old.


Cross Trainers Academy (for at-risk kids)
The best, most proven way out of poverty is a good education. They provide that to at-risk children through Cross Trainers Academy, where students are groomed for success and leadership through academics and life lessons about morals and character through Christian teaching.
