Emergency Services

Homelessness has a face. It's a man that has fallen on tough times. It's a son that is dealing with substance abuse. There are many reasons that cause people to be homeless. Whatever the reason, we're here to help. But we don't want to just give someone a place to sleep. We want to offer them the chance to change and improve their life.

The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission provides up to 30 consecutive nights of overnight shelter to transient men who are homeless and would otherwise be living on the streets or in the woods. Some of the requirements for men staying in the Transient Program are:

  • They must be sober
  • They must shower each evening before given a bed
  • They must attend the evening chapel service

Each guest is given a personal care package containing enough personal hygiene products to last thirty days. A change of clothing is also made available if needed. A hot meal is provided following the evening chapel service.

Overnight guests may also stay for breakfast the following morning. However, due to limited storage space transients may not leave their personal possessions on the property.
