Their support has allowed this ministry to build comprehensive services to help those in need.

Because of our Christian faith, we turn no one away. Today we offer Life Restoration Services, Education and Career Training and Permanent Housing Placement.

A nonprofit, Christian social service ministry helping and hope to the poor and homeless in southern New Jersey since 1964. People who have no home receive practical help, counseling, and Christian compassion.

    As an employee of the Atlantic City Rescue Mission I would like to express how vital our kitchen facilities are in our daily operations. The kitchen meets the needs of hundreds of people in this community daily. We are the only organization in our area which serves hot meals three times a day, seven days a week, regardless of the weather. In doing so our facilities have begun to show signs of the wear and tear. Your help would be a blessing, not only for the organization, but most importantly our community. I pray that you find it in your heart to help us nourish each and every person who walks through our doors. May God Bless You.
