Work 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.  The men receive instruction in areas such as operating equipment, serving the public, and grounds maintenance.  We value the structure and discipline that work requires, and we encourage teamwork to accomplish the many and varied tasks necessary to operate the Mission.

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.  We always strive to operate as a light in the community where neighbors can find great shopping values but also share prayers, needs and encouragement with the store staff, volunteers and clients.  It is not uncommon to find customers and staff praying together in our stores.  We also partner with other local agencies to meet the material needs of those who fall on hard times.

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.
