A Hand Up, not a hand out

What, Where, and When?

About Rome Rescue Mission

Building a Welcoming and Healing Culture

The Rome Rescue Mission is a Christian ministry aiding those needing shelter, food, and basic life necessities. The mission is available to assist individuals or families who are in immediate danger, distressed, or trapped in an unsafe situation. Our primary objective is to alleviate suffering, promote healing, and demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through practical actions and compassionate outreach. The phrase, “A Hand Up, Not a Hand Out,” speaks to our commitment to restoring a quality of life to those willing to put forth the effort and work needed to experience a life change.

Matthew 25:40
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
