Christ challenges all Christians to make a home for the homeless, to be a friend to the friendless and to provide hope for the hopeless. Many have accepted that challenge.
In 1932, a number of Dubuque area churches explored the possibility of providing a ministry to the less fortunate. Originally, there was a need to minister to the transients who traveled the nation during the Great Depression. From these beginnings, the Dubuque Rescue Mission was born.
Through the years, the Dubuque Rescue Mission has been able to meet many of the ever-changing needs of the less fortunate. What has made our ministry a success? The people, churches and organizations who help us with financial gifts and donations of food and goods. Because of the generosity of these individuals and organizations, we can serve those who are less fortunate than ourselves. We thank them for their support.
Our services are available to all, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, handicap, creed, religion or political affiliation.
