The Rescue Mission of Cape Fear was founded in 1974 in Wilmington, NC as a non-denominational, Christ-centered ministry serving the homeless and their needs. Located at 502 Castle Street in downtown Wilmington, for over 45 years we have made it our mission to serve the homeless, hungry and hurting of the Cape Fear Region. At any given time, we can serve 16 men in our program.
Our Mission offers physical and spiritual healing to the homeless population in the area who come from so many different walks in life. Daily we provide food, shelter, clothing as well as chapel services, devotionals, access to the self-help groups in the area as well as life’s other necessities. Two times a week the men in our program attend Celebrate Recovery at local churches to help them in their recovery process. On Sunday mornings, the men attend local church services as we alternate through the different faiths of Christianity. 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 our donors, we can help the men in our program work towards recovery and 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 work 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!
