Western Carolina Rescue Ministries has served our community faithfully since March of 1981. Over thirty years, we have seen God move mightily in the lives of the men and women we serve. Some women and men come in for food and shelter, while others benefit from out one-year residential recovery program which offers freedom from the chains of addiction. People are at the heart of our mission, and they need God's love.
"I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Jesus (Gospel of Matthew 25:40)
In 1979, Rev. Arch Cameron who played an important role in the ministry's beginnings wanted people to have , " a place where they can come in from the cold, have a warm meal, and get the help they need to turn their lives around."
The orignal name of the ministry was Western Carolina Rescue "Mission," and while we have stayed true to our rescue mission roots, we have added recovery and restoration services to better serve our community.
