Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to gather with family, enjoy good food and give thanks, but for many, there seems little to be thankful for. Bad decisions, tragedy or a lifetime of abuse have left them without a home or family. At the Rome Rescue Mission, we give hope to the hopeless, a safe shelter, a hot meal and people to share it, truly a reason to be thankful. For just two dollars you can give someone a place to call home, share a traditional Thanksgiving meal with those who care. We believe that no one should be without on Thanksgiving. Last year over 3,000 meals were served during the Thanksgiving season.
People may join us on Thanksgiving Day! We will be open from 9am- 3pm. A Continental breakfast will be served from 9am to 10am.
