Goodwill Rescue Mission's Compassionate Care program serves those experiencing homelessness by providing basic needs and emergency care services in welcoming, trauma-informed environments. Meals, shelter, clothing, and more are provided seven days a week, 365 days a year, to all who walk through our doors - no questions asked. Guests who are ready to move beyond Compassionate Care have the opportunity to begin individualized care planning in partnership with onsite case managers. In 2017, we joined forces with The Bowery Mission, offering programs and services in nine locations, with the goal of preventing homelessness and partnering with individuals to become independent, self-sustaining citizens. We aim to build trust by establishing name-knowing relationships with our guests, inviting them to choose help and transform their lives. In 2017, we provided over 90,000 warm meals and 21,000 nights of shelter to those in need.
