COVID-19 Information – Temporary Changes To Our Services

At the Frederick Rescue Mission, today and every day, we rely on Jesus.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

The Rescue Mission also honors the direction and work of our government leaders, and the wisdom and guidance of the Frederick County Health Department as we navigate the COVID-19 crisis. As a result, the Mission will need to make some temporary changes to our services; however, in support of our mission to provide a Christ-centered ministry providing residential recovery programs to the homeless or chemically addicted, food to the hungry, clothing to the needy, and connection within our community through relationships, we will continue to provide the most vital services with some modifications.
