Congratulations to the Providence Rescue Mission for receiving this month’s Humanitarian Award for their outstanding service to the homeless community.
For over a year now, five nights a week, the Mission has been feeding and ministering to the men who stay at Harrington Hall. This is an emergency facility that is operated by the State of Rhode Island on the John O. Pastore grounds in Cranston.
They undertook this additional ministry because it came to their attention that due to the state’s financial hardship these men needed help. So to not only bless the men, but also our state, the Mission decided to step to the plate and make a real difference!
The Mission serves an additional 100 plus meals at Harrington Hall at no cost to the state, on top of the 120 meals they currently serve at the Mission!
“It’s nice knowing that we have a meal we can count on.” – John W.
“Thank You…it is one less problem I have to worry about.” - Martin
“I think it is great that some people care.” – GBL
Message from Sean Carew:
I want to let you know that the people we serve truly appreciate all that you are doing to help us provide for them. They are always quick to say “Thank you” or “I don’t know where I would have eaten tonight if it was not for the Mission”. You can only imagine what it must be like to be homeless, struggling with addiction, depression and other life challenges and realizing that because of caring people of our community you are going to bed with a full stomach! What a blessing!
We at the Mission consider it a privilege to partner with “House of Hope” and others to help make life more dignified for those that are struggling in our community! The Mission is a non-profit, non-denominational privately funded ministry that since 1999 has provided food, safe shelter, Christian counseling, and other essential service at no charge to those we serve.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and support of the mission. If you want to donate, volunteer, or just want to see what it is all about, call or email to set up a time to give you a tour of the facility.
