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.
Thirty youth choir members visited the Mission on Thursday, June 18th from First Baptist Church, Smithfield, North Carolina. The youth sang wonderful songs and provided a sermon to thirty men who were present. Thanks to the youth for the great songs and word which encouraged the men. Click HERE for a link to a YouTube video of the group singing at all the places in San Antonio they visited including the San Jose Mission, Woodland Baptist Church and The Meadows Retirement Center.
Woodland Baptist Church provided a delicious lasagna dinner for the men on March 15th, 2015. The meal included fresh fruit, rolls, sodas, banana pudding and cookies. Thanks to Woodland for again serving the men great food with a smile!
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!
