In Milwaukee, when men or mothers with children need a hot meal, a warm, safe bed, or a place to put their lives back together, they come to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. We are here to provide care and support to people who are in need. Our departments that deliver comprehensive programs include:
- Safe Harbor, the Mission's refuge for homeless, hurting men.
- Joy House, our place of safety and support for homeless mothers with children.
- Cross Trainers Academy, a K-6th grade Christian school for at-risk children in the city of Milwaukee.
Our mission statement:
In response to God's grace through Christ, we compassionately serve men, women and children who are homeless, hungry or poor to help them become whole in body, mind and spirit for the glory of God. "...whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40

He came to MRM thinking he’d just need a meal or two, a place to collect his thoughts while he figured out what to do next. But then he learned about our LifeSkills program and decided that he belonged here.
