Homeless Shelter & Addiction Recovery Program Serving Durham, Chapel Hill & Raleigh

As Durham, NC’s oldest and largest long-term shelter, the Durham Rescue Mission currently serves 400 men, women and children a day, 365 days a year throughout the Triangle by providing safe shelter, addiction recovery programs and much more.

Partner with us in this mission by donating to our ministry or volunteering your time serving at the Durham Rescue Mission. We offer a number of volunteer opportunities to individuals, families, school groups, church groups and anyone else interested in making a difference in the Raleigh-Durham community.

The Durham Rescue Mission: Restoring Lives for His Glory

Our Mission is to meet through the power of Jesus Christ the needs of the whole person: spiritual, educational, emotional, physical, social and vocational, so that those who are hurting may become fully functioning members of society.

Not only does our nonprofit organization provide basic necessities to the homeless and addicted of the Triangle, such as food, shelter and clothing — we also offer them a deeper, more fulfilling life through Biblical counseling, education, vocational training, continued accountability and countless other programs and services.

We’ve found that most of our residents come to us at a point of true desperation, with nowhere else to turn. Many of them have sought every possible solution to their problem of homelessness or addiction — except God. We believe that holistic restoration can only come through an authentic desire to change rooted in an understanding of what Jesus Christ has already done for each and every one of us through the Gospel.

Over the past 40 years, the Durham Rescue Mission has seen thousands of shattered lives mended through our ministry and the transformational power of Christ.
