About this Shelter
The Martinsburg Union Rescue Mission primarily serves homeless men, providing a place to live and structured programs to improve their lives.
But the mission also serves meals to anyone who is hungry, it provides clothing, shoes, and furnishings to needy families, and can offer emergency overnight housing for families and women if necessary.
Mission Statement: The main purpose and the reason the Rescue Mission exists is to fulfill the great commission as outlined by Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19 and 20: Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age, Amen. The general purpose of all the residential rehabilitation programs is to prepare men to return to the mainstream of our society and become responsible productive members of that society
