This is the website of the San Antonio Rescue Mission. We have been providing shelter, food, and assistance to homeless men in San Antonio for forty years. We serve an average of 35 men per night and over 9000 per year.
The Mission was visited by Little Caesars Love Kitchen on March 8, 2015. Love Kitchen travels across the country meeting the needs of the hungry, homeless and disaster survivors. According to their web site HERE the Love Kitchen has served more than two million people in 48 states and four Canadian provinces. About 35 men and staff enjoyed 33 delicious pepperoni and cheese pizzas and were completely stuffed. We would like to thank Little Caesars for their contribution of this wonderful meal to the Mission, and for their ongoing work in helping meet the needs of homeless people and many others.
The San Antonio Rescue Mission is a faith work, supported by God’s people. We do not receive support from any federal, state, county or city organization. Your voluntary contribution is our only means of support. We do not solicit funds door to door.
Our needs are simple:
We need your prayers.
Your financial support to operate the Mission.
Your donations of food, clothing, toiletries and shoes.
We are truly humbled and thankful for our many, many supporters including individuals and churches in the San Antonio Community.
Woodland Baptist Church hosted a dinner of meatball subs on Friday, March 20 with delicious fresh fruit, cookies, cherry and apple pies. The men ate heartily and enjoyed everything. Thanks to Woodland whose members are trying to serve a meal once a month at the Mission.
Ruth Graeter decided to celebrate her birthday by giving a catered dinner for the men. Rather than receiving gifts, she wanted to “give” on her birthday as a way of giving thanks for life’s blessings. The men had second and third helpings of chicken-fried steak with gravy, potatoes, green beans, and even apple pie and ice cream. Thanks to Ruth for making her special day a special one for the men!
