The Rome Rescue Mission is a Christian organization committed to assisting the least, the last and the lost. During this Easter season, many will come to our doors seeking a warm meal, a loving environment and hope for a brighter future. The Rome Rescue Mission serves 200 meals per day, has an 18-bed shelter for Men, Women & Children, and will serve over 400 meals on Easter day.
We provide a means of hope by giving shelter to the homeless, feeding the poor, inspiring life-long learning and encouraging a personal relationship with God to all individuals and families we serve. The Rome Rescue Mission, a hand-up, not a handout.
