Western Carolina Rescue Mission

Raise money for Western Carolina Rescue Mission

We need to purchase a walk-behind fork lift, which will help us off-load pallets of food and other donations and put in our J House at WESTERN CAROLINA RESCUE MINISTRIES. Each week we get pallets of food from Trader Joes, Ingles, Pepsi, etc and currently we rely on MAN-POWER to get the pallets off the box-truck and into the J House - - -it is BEYOND scary to watch this and takes about 4-6 men to get this done! The fork lift would help us operate more efficiently and safely!

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)
