Our History

Charlotte Rescue Mission was founded in 1938 by a group of Christian business people who wanted to serve those facing homelessness. Because many people who came to the Mission for help during those early years were struggling with addiction, the Mission decided to pivot to focus on addiction recovery.




To serve those at the intersection of homelessness and addiction so they can achieve their God-given potential.




A world free of addiction.

Our Philosophy

We believe that professional counseling and therapy is necessary to help individuals to overcome the consequences of alcoholism and other drug addiction. We also recognize that alcoholism and other drug addictions are a “family illness” and believe that all of the members of the alcoholic’s family need to be a part of the recovery process by receiving specialized help.

Our Team

Our staff is dedicated to providing hope for those battling addiction and homelessness.
