Services to End Hunger and Homelessness - Rescue Mission Alliance


Rescue Mission Alliance Services

One Mission, Four Communities

The Rescue Mission Alliance strives to share hope, end hunger and homelessness, change lives and strengthen communities one person at a time. We operate in the communities of Syracuse, Auburn, Binghamton and Ithaca with programs tailored to each community. Among the services we offer are emergency shelter, meals, supportive permanent housing, employment resources, and spiritual care.  In all of our locations, case managers help guests develop individual plans and connect with the support they need to leave homelessness and hunger behind.

Syracuse Rescue Mission

In Syracuse, the Rescue Mission’s Alice C. Barber Day Center and Kiesewetter Emergency Shelter is open to the public during the day and shelters men and women in its 183-bed facility overnight. In addition to meeting basic needs, services include employment and education resources, spiritual support, mental health screening, some health services, and referrals to other resources. The Mission also provides 37 units of permanent, affordable housing and a 59-bed adult home.

Our Syracuse Food Service Center serves three free meals every day of the year to anyone in need, adding up to nearly a quarter million meals annually.

Auburn Rescue Mission

The Auburn Rescue Mission provides supportive housing for families who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless, as well as outreach to other families in temporary housing. The Rescue Mission provides case management, spiritual care, housing advocacy, and positive youth and family activities to strengthen and stabilize families.

Binghamton Rescue Mission

The Binghamton Rescue Mission’s 32-bed residence provides men who have experienced homelessness a supportive place to rebuild their lives. Services include case management, daily meals, spiritual care, transportation to important appointments and other services.
