Rescue Mission of Cape Fear The Cape Fear Gospel Rescue Mission was founded in 1974 in Wilmington, NC, as a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry serving the local homeless population and their needs. Through our boots-on-the-ground approach, we’re humbled to be part of the fabric of the community we serve, weaving hope and healing in the lives of many. As our 50th Anniversary nears, our grassroots organization has served scores of men with one mission at the heart of it… to serve the homeless, hungry, and hurting. Known locally as the Rescue Mission of Cape Fear, our facility can serve up to 18 men in our residential program located downtown at 502 Castle Street. The Rescue Mission offers physical and spiritual healing to folks experiencing homelessness in the area who come from so many different walks of life. We provide food, shelter, clothing, resources, fellowship, and encouragement to help them establish a plan for their next step in life. With basic needs met, residents also participate in chapel services, devotionals, and gain access to self-help groups in the area. Two times a week the men in our program attend Celebrate Recovery at local churches to support their recovery process. On Sunday mornings, we attend local church services alternating among various denominations of the Christian faith. You may find them at an Episcopal service one Sunday while the next week they could be at a Methodist, Baptist or other non-denominational service. Through support and cooperation with local churches, community partners and donors like you, we help the men in our program work towards recovery to gain a new outlook on life. Over the years we’ve found that we can change the face of homelessness in our community one person at a time if we work on the balance of physical and spiritual needs of each individual. The Mission staff works daily to help further foster independence and the realization for the residents in our program that there is a HOPE for a different, brighter and better future!
