This rating was published 05/01/2020 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Goodwill Rescue Mission provides meals, shelter, clothing, and more seven days a week, 365 days a year to the poor, homeless and addicted of Newark. In order to effectively combat the epidemic of homelessness, Goodwill Rescue Mission (Newark) and New York City Rescue Mission joined forces with The Bowery Mission. Leveraging more than 400 years of combined service, three historic organizations have become one to reimagine the fight against poverty and homelessness. In collaboration each year, we provide 558,000 meals, 140,000 nights of safe shelter and 100,000 articles of clothing. Currently, we are in a new season where we have the opportunity to redevelop the Mission's campus. Over the next 2-3 years, we will work with a real estate developer to replace the Mission's current buildings with a newly constructed space, purpose-built to serve the critical needs of men, women and families in Newark. This means direct services have temporarily been suspended and the Mission plans to reopen
