Mission Update: 50th Anniversary Gala

Guess who is 50... the Atlantic City Rescue Mission has faithfully served the community for 50 years.  Founded in 1964 by John Fink, the Mission provided hot food and shelter to a few homeless men from a small storefront in Atlantic City. Since that time, we’ve added or expanded programs over the years in response to the growing and changing needs of the people we serve. Today we are more passionate than ever about our mission to serve.

To commemorate this special occasion, friends & supporters of the Mission are planning a special gala on August 14, 2014 at Stockton.  To help kick off the event, Dr. Bernice King the youngest child of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.will be the evenings featured key-note speaker.  For VIP sponsorships, tickets, or further information about the Gala, please click here.

From homelessness to home. Hear from former graduates of our recovery programs, and share a legacy of love. We hope to see you there! 

Also, we are looking for the first 12 volunteers to help with the book signing and event registration. Click here to volunteer
