Founded in 1961 the Raleigh Rescue Mission is a faith-based (Christian) nonprofit organization providing short and long-term care every day of the year to the men, women, and children who are experiencing homelessness. Each adult and child enters into our proven New Life Plan to help rebuild their lives and assist them from homelessness to self-sufficiency living in a permanent home. Each individual that enters the Mission is invited to enter into the New Life Plan, a six-phase, 2-year program that provides the framework to achieve self-sufficiency and break the cycle of poverty. This plan charts a clear path to finding a livable-wage job/career, obtaining transportation, affordable rent housing and eventually homeownership. Children that enter the Mission with their parent also enter into a customized plan designed to assist them to excel in school, set them up for success in higher education, and to break the cycle of generational poverty.

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Raleigh Rescue Mission provides people experiencing homelessness with a temporary place to stay.
Impact Statement
$90 provides a night of shelter for a person experiencing homelessness.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of emergency shelters are based on the cost of providing a night of shelter relative to the Fair Market Rent in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 200% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 400%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Raleigh Rescue Mission.
Data Source
We look for self-reported shelter nights. If we cannot find this information we estimate it using HIC data.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that the provision of shelter by one nonprofit does not diminish the provision of shelter by any other (neighboring) nonprofit. We also assume there is, in general, no slack capacity in the homeless shelter system. In the absence of a given shelter, beneficiaries would not be able to stay at another shelter because other shelters are assumed to have no beds to spare. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.
