1Residential Recovery Program

 Men who enter WRM for recovery work through a highly structured program of daily classes, training, work therapy, counseling, case management, 12-step meetings and Christian curriculum which is typically completed in 9 months. Throughout their experience at the Mission, the men are encouraged to participate in a local church, attend AA/NA/CR meetings, and keep focus on the vision for their future that God has purposed for them.

New Life – We believe that  true life transformation is not only possible but promised in the redeeming power found in Jesus Christ.

New Hope – The Truth is that even in the wake of the destruction and despair of addiction, nothing is too hard for God, and each person, created in the image of God, is the object of His extravagant love.

03Work Therapy

The life of the Mission is characterized by the clients working together to maintain the facility and participate directly in serving others through the Mission’s community assistance ministries.  Each man is assigned to a Work Station on the campus, at The Mission Store or in the Food Pantry.

Thrift-Recycling:

The ministry of the Westminster Rescue Mission is supported in part by revenues generated through The Mission Store located on our main campus.  The store provides opportunities for bargain shopping for our community while at the same time giving the men in our Recovery Program the chance to learn skills and serve the public.  Clients contribute to the operations in the areas of receiving and sorting donations, working with customers in the stores and pick-up and delivery of donations and purchases.

Food Distribution:

The Westminster Rescue Mission collects and redistributes 1,000,000 pounds of surplus food annually.
Clients assigned to this Work Station serve in a variety of ways:
  • Collecting food six-days per week from 40+ retail food partners
  • Intake, sorting and weighing food for redistribution to 30+ food resource partners that help feed the hungry in Carroll County
  • Stocking the shelves at the Sparrow’s Nest food pantry, WRM on-site pantry
  • Assisting food pantry clients during their monthly visits
  • Assisting with three monthly neighborhood outreach food distribution events that serve low-income neighborhoods for residents who typically do not have a means of transportation to come to the on-site pantry.
