About Us

Message from our Executive Director

The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission defines the purpose, objective and focus of Hagerstown Rescue Mission. The Hope Center gives hope to men, women, children, and teens who have no hope or who have lost all hope because their hopes have been quenched by a cruel, unrelenting world.

Since its beginning in 1955, Hagerstown Rescue Mission has reached out to people who have little or no hope at all of ever breaking free from the destructive cycle of homelessness, addictions, abuse, destructive behavior, and an overwhelming feeling of despair, worthlessness, and of being unloved. Our message to men, women, teens and children can be found in Jeremiah 29:11 which says, “For I know the thoughts I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Every meal served, every piece of clothing given away, every bed night provided, every program and service provided to those who come to us for help and assistance is given in love to provide hope because God first loved us and gave us the only true source of hope – the Lord Jesus Christ Himself (I Timothy 1:1b)!

Jude 22 says, “And on some have compassion, making a difference.” I challenge you to become involved in the ministry of hope here at The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission. You can make a difference in the lives of so many!
