Partner with Us
The core of the Boston Rescue Missions programs and service to the Greater Boston community is rooted in the principles of Christianity. Our mission statement is a reflection of our practices "A healing community where lives are transformed through Christ's love, grace, and compassion".
The Boston Rescue Mission is not related to a specific denomination and focuses on the basic Christian principle of serving those in need. This basic principle is shared by many churches in the Boston area reflected by the fact that over one hundred churches supported the Mission is some manner in the past year.
There are numerous opportunities for churches to partner with the Boston Rescue Mission. Many churches support the Mission with periodic financial contributions; organizing food drives, serving in the kitchen, food pantry, and building improvement projects. Other church groups come to the Mission and host Bible studies, prayer meetings and participate in spiritual mentoring opportunities with program members.
We're so grateful to many of these churches who have partnered with us for a long time:
Many companies look for ways to make a charitable impact in the community. Deciding on the charity and the method of impact can be challenging. A major component of our success is our relationships with other community members who support the Mission in a variety of ways. We ask that you consider the Boston Rescue Mission as a corporate community partner.
The following are six ways in which Companies can partner with the Mission:
Volunteering: Individual and group opportunities
Program Support: Donate to a specific program
Marketing and Sponsorship: Help to spread the name of the Mission
Renovation and Expansion: Consider long-term capital goals
The Job Referral Network: Give a qualified worker another chance
Material Support: Help us fulfill specific material needs
We're so grateful to so many companies for offering assistance every year. Some of our most dedicated supporters include:

Organize a donation drive or fundraiser (5K run, sell chicken wings during an away game, singing for dollars, etc.)
Come and serve meals to hungry families in our kitchen or on the Boston Common
Plan an alternative spring break doing special projects for Mission facilities
Spend a semester as an intern
Here are just a few of the schools providing consistent support over the course of many years:
Many schools have had relationships with us over several years, and continue their support long after students have left. Contact Mauricia at 617-338-9000 ext.1230 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how members of your school can help transform lives.
