Waterfront Rescue Mission: Rebuilding Lives & Nurturing Souls
While most people associate Waterfront Rescue Mission with feeding and sheltering the homeless, they are that and so much more. The mission first opened in 1949 in downtown Pensacola and served as a place for sailors to sleep off their port adventures. The Mission saw this as an opportunity to provide the gospel, as well as a place to sleep and a hot meal, to the men. Since that time, the Mission has relocated to a larger campus on Herman Street and has grown its services tremendously while still maintaining its core purpose, which is to transform lives via the gospel.
