Jersey Shore Rescue Mission Sign

THE JERSEY SHORE RESCUE MISSION is a gospel mission in Monmouth County, New Jersey that reaches out to the homeless and hopeless people in the area. They are committed to meeting the critical needs of the poor, homeless and addicted and are available every day of the year. Each evening a hot meal is served and accommodation is provided as well.

The Rescue Mission was founded by the leaders of the Market Street Mission in Morristown, New Jersey in 2006. This mission began back in 1889 and has been helping men, women and children since that time. Taking the name literally – Gospel means ‘good news’, Rescue means ‘deliver from actual or impending calamity’, and mission means ‘one sent’ – so the name defines the calling of the dedicated workers here.

The long term goal of the mission is to develop an extensive Christian Life Change program. At this point, the folks in the mission’s Emergency Services Program work hard to fulfil immediate basic needs (food, shelter, clothing, showers, food stamps, help with birth certificates, etc.) as well as giving referrals. They provide approximately 50 meals each evening to the homeless and the working poor.

The Mission also runs a large Thrift Store – providing clothing, new and used furniture, sporting goods and household items at bargain prices. Every fall, about 1500 free winter coats are given out to those who need them. All proceeds go toward the meals and shelter expenses of the Mission.

Illustrating the Mission’s logo ‘A life boat to the least, the last and the lost’, their sign features a boat that was hand sculpted and painted. The text was hand carved and gilded with 23kt gold, lending a dignity and quality that welcomes each visitor and says, without words, that each one is worthy.
