Helping the HUNGRY, Homeless and Hurting

Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission leadership is motivated by their Christian faith to love, rescue, and train the homeless and disadvantaged in the Philadelphia area. This team of dedicated men and women are called to serve this most vulnerable community. That calling, combined with a consistent dependence on prayer and the Bible, informs the direction of the Mission.
