What We Do
Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission strives to meet the physical needs of the homeless and hurting men in Philadelphia through emergency shelter services that provide safe beds and nutritious meals to our homeless guests 365 days a year. Meeting the basic, physical needs is not enough. Staff at the Mission strive to meet spiritual needs as well through pre-meal chapel services, one-on-one meeting and case management from the Homeless Services staff, and through the 12 month Next Level Transitional Housing Program.
The Next Level Program is a twelve month transitional housing program available to emergency shelter guests that are seeking stability, spiritual development, and long-term success. The goal of the program is to equip homeless men with the practical and spiritual life skills they need to be self-sufficient individuals and positive contributors to society. Men in the Next Level Program maintain up to a one-year residency at Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission and reside in private living quarters on the Mission’s fourth floor. The Next Level Program is individualized the meet the unique needs of each participant. Case management, participating in a church community, volunteering to serve in their community, vocational and educational support are all central components to the program.
In addition to meeting basic life needs for men, the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission enables those men who are committed to a positive life change to address their problems through an intensive 16-month program.
The purpose of Wayne Hall, the women’s ministry of Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, is to teach women how to restructure their lives according to the Word of God.
Volunteer opportunities for groups with Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission take place at our Center City and Germantown locations.
Churches, schools, businesses, and other organizations can help the homeless and hurting men and women at the Mission by collecting non-perishable food items.*
