Welcome to the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission! I’m glad you’ve taken some time to learn more about our ministry to Asbury Park – and I hope you’ll visit again and again to stay updated on the lives that are being radically transformed by God’s grace here every day.
The Jersey Shore Rescue Mission is a refuge for our neighbors facing poverty, homelessness, and addiction, and our history extends long before we opened our doors in Asbury Park. Jersey Shore was created as an outreach of our Market Street Mission location in Morristown, which has been serving the community in Northern New Jersey since 1889.
After more than 100 years of ministry in Morristown, our team saw a need for services in Asbury Park as well, and the Lord opened the doors for us to start the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission in 2006. Though it took a few years to get started, our doors have been open ever since to keep serving those in need here in the Shore community through meals, shelter, and addiction recovery.
Today, thanks to the generous support of our community, our residential program and many other services are offered freely to anyone who comes here seeking help to overcome huge challenges in their lives and find hope for a brighter future through God’s transformative love.
On the pages of this website, we’ve provided all the information you’ll need to get to know us better, whether you’re someone looking for a hot meal, or someone looking for a way to serve others in need through service as a volunteer or by donating to the Mission. As you have questions about our programs or service opportunities, I invite you to reach out to our staff using our Contact page.
On behalf of our staff, and all the local men, women and children being served here at the Mission daily, I want to thank you for your prayers, your support and your encouragement of this ministry.
