Winston Salem Rescue Mission



Life Builders

A nourishing meal, a hot shower, clean clothes, toiletries, and a warm bed are some of the services offered to men who have nowhere else to go. The men are encouraged to stay for at least 90 days and to try to turn their lives around to become successful and employable citizens. While here at the Mission, the men receive counseling and attend Bible studies and chapel services. The Mission’s work therapy program provides meaningful work in the warehouse, thrift stores, repair shop, around the Mission, and on the trucks. Men who come to the Mission with no hope of a bright future receive the opportunity to be productive and restore their dignity and self-esteem. Many of them arrive with no personal identification. The staff of the Mission helps residents obtain a driver’s license, a NC identification card, social security card, or a criminal background check, depending on their need.  Some of the classes the men attend include Overcomers in Christ, Anger Management, Crossroads, Life Skills, and Financial Management.


The Transformers program is a 12-month recovery program which consists of Biblical counseling, Bible study classes, local church attendance, case management, medical assistance, health training, adult education, life skills training, financial planning, and career development.  The Program is divided into four phases, including Introduction, Transformation, Application, and Graduation.  The Program is task, not time oriented.  Before moving to the next phase, residents must complete all the requirements of each phase and be evaluated by their counselor.  Upon completion of Transformers, residents will have secured and maintained permanent housing and employment and will be equipped with the tools to be productive members of society.

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye Transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

Work Therapy

As part of the ninety-day program, the residents at the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission are given work to do according to their physical abilities and skill levels. They work in the thrift stores, warehouse, repair shops, around the Mission, and on the trucks. The jobs they are given help to instill a sense of responsibility as well as teach them how to handle authority and work relationships.

Partnership with the Veteran’s Administration

Veterans are referred here from all over the state because of the great reputation of the Winston-Salem Veteran’s Administration. Each week a representative comes to the Mission and meets with the veterans one-on-one. The VA helps these men obtain the medicine they need and arranges for them to go to the VA Hospital in Salisbury when necessary. They also help them to find transitional housing and aid them in obtaining disability benefits.

Alpha Acres

Located on a 110-acre farm in Yadkin County, Alpha Acres is a long-term drug and alcohol recovery center. Men who enter this twelve-month program receive biblical counseling, participate in Bible studies, and engage in work therapy opportunities. The Innovative Learning Center prepares them to obtain their GED diploma and helps them to acquire computer literacy at the same time.

When he arrives, however, he realizes fate has other things in mind.

Along the way, a league of unsavory characters, mean-spirited nature and hard-won maturity pepper his journey with color and lasting relationships.
