Raise money for Western Carolina Rescue Mission

Direct Impact of COVID-19

Since the start of this public health crisis, the needs of our community have risen dramatically. We are doing our best every day to meet these extremely high demands, and that is only possible thanks to our incredible staff and donors like you!

  •  On any given day, WCRM would typically serve around 250 individuals a hot meal.  Since COVID-19, we have seen this number increase to nearly 500 individuals.  This is an increase of 122%
  • On Tuesdays,  WCRM distributes food boxes for individuals in need of grocery support. Before COVID-19, we were distributing approximately 50 boxes a week, now we are serving nearly 150 boxes each week. A 200% increase! 

About Us

We seek to provide Rescue, Recovery and Restoration in Jesus' Name. Each of the three components of our Ministry - Rescue, Recovery and Restoration - is about meeting people in crisis where they are, caring for them with dignity, and then restoring them to healthy, productive lives.

Our belief is that God has so much more for the men, women and children of Western North Carolina struggling with poverty, homelessness and addiction.  We are called to help bring stability to the chaos of these wounded lives and help them discover the plans and potential that God has placed in them.

Whether serving hundreds of meals each day, providing thousands of beds each year, offering a free residential addiction program, or equipping the working poor with life skills and job training, we are committed to reflecting the love of Jesus in a way that changes lives and transforms our community.

As a nondenominational ministry, we serve our clients regardless of their faith. 

Our History

Western Carolina Rescue Mission has served our community faithfully since March of 1981. For over thirty years, we have seen God move mightily in the lives of the men and women we serve. Some women and men come in for food and shelter, while others benefit from our one-year residential recovery program which offers freedom from the chains of addiction.

"I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
- Jesus (Gospel of Matthew 25:40)
