Who We Are


The Westminster Rescue Mission is a nonprofit Christian organization committed to seeing lives healed and transformed. The Mission's two distinct areas of service include

Our ADDICTION HEALING CENTER (AHC) is a CARF-accredited, ASAM 3.1 treatment program, offering two avenues of support for people seeking substance-use disorder recovery. Our multi-faceted, faith-based, treatment approach is tailored for each client, and completely free of charge. We also offer independent living and recovery maintenance through our transitional housing, outpatient and after-care services.

For those experiencing food insecurity, the MISSION FOOD PROGRAM provides community outreach services and a food pantry for individuals and families in need of hunger relief.



As a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit Christian organization the Westminster Rescue Mission is a community that provides clinical, physical, and spiritual resources to heal the addicted and feed the hungry. We take a holistic approach with Christ as the foundation of our work. Our two ministry programs include the Addiction Healing Center, and Mission Food Program.


Westminster Rescue Mission’s service programs including our substance treatment center and food distribution outreach programs are critical in aiding Carroll County and Maryland residents in need. And now, even more so in the wake of the pandemic’s economic disruption, severed access to food, basic necessities, and increased drug-use – the services we provide to our community are more crucial than ever.



Community is an essential part of who we are. We rely on private donors, businesses, and churches to support our work - financially, in-kind, through volunteerism, and other opportunities. Learn how we can help you achieve your philanthropic goals, get involved, or volunteer.
