Meet the Durham Rescue Mission Staff

The Durham Rescue Mission has been mending shattered lives since 1974, providing food, shelter, clothes, counseling and more to the homeless, addicted and broken men, women and children of the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. You can contact our main office at 919-688-9641.

Since the beginning, the Lord has brought together a wonderful group of people to serve Him in this mission through administration, management, counseling and other essential roles. Many of our staff members and apprentices actually joined our team after experiencing a changed life through the ministry of the Durham Rescue Mission.

We are thankful for all the ways we have been blessed by our staff — we truly would not be where we are today without the dedication and hard work of each of them.
