The Durham Rescue Mission was founded in 1974 with the single goal in mind:
Mend shattered lives by restoring families and give our community hope.

We’ve been standing true to our mission for years now – feeding, helping, and restoring faith in countless individuals in need in the Durham, Raleigh, and Chapel Hill area.

We are Durham’s oldest and largest long-term homeless shelter, providing food, clothing,  training, Biblical counseling, job placement, and much more to broken men, women, and children.

Our doors are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

WAYS TO HELP

YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The work that we do and resources we provide to those in need is primarily funded by generous donors who want to see their community grow and volunteers who donate their spare time to help others change their lives.

A donation of $2.49 covers the cost of a meal and care that will make help a fellow neighbor in need.

Shop & Support

a thrift store for good

Durham Rescue Mission Thrift Stores are just one of the ways you can support our cause while also making the choice to shop sustainably.

Make your money go towards good, reduce consumer waste, and help your local community by shopping second hand.

We give because God gave first, we want to be more like Him and we trust Him.

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

The impacts of COVID and the following recession have made an impact on our community and more are in need of assistance than anticipated.

Please consider donating. It costs less than $2 a day to provide food, shelter, and training to one of our brothers and sisters in need.
