Some people think that we are just an alcohol & drug rehabilitation facility. Others think that we just give food to the hungry. There are some who think we just provide housing to the homeless.

All of those assumptions are correct! We are a multi-faceted facility that is geared to providing free assistance to many different people in many different situations.


From providing overnight shelter to homeless men, to supplying hungry families with bags of groceries, to helping desperate men overcome their addictions, to providing free lunches and dinners to hungry neighbors, to hosting free summer day camps for at-risk kids, The Hope Center at Hagerstown Rescue Mission works hard everyday, all year long to meet the needs of those who need help.

And we provide all of these services free of charge and without any tax-payer funding. You read that right. We do not take any tax money from the government. All of our support is provided by faithful friends and supporters in the community. From churches, to individuals, to social clubs and local businesses, our facility is all about neighbors helping neighbors.

Camp Wild is a free day camp for four weeks of the summer for at-risk kids in Hagerstown and surrounding communities. Your gift helps to keep this camp free for hundreds of kids in the Hub City.

When you purchase anything from one of our Thrift Stores* in Hagerstown or Chambersburg, you’ve helped to provide a much needed service to someone in need. The funds generated from sales in our stores help to keep our facility free for anyone, day or night, all year long.


Since 1955, we’ve been here. Providing shelter to the homeless. Providing food to the hungry. Providing help to the addicted. Providing hope to the desperate.

As we are currently experiencing extremely cold temperatures, please know that our doors are always open to provide a hot meal, a warm shower and a comfortable bed to someone in need.

And with your continued support we are able to do this work tomorrow, and the next day and the next. Thank you for shopping at our Thrift Stores. Thank you for donating your gently used clothing, furniture & household items. Thank you for volunteering your time. Thank you for your financial support. And thank you for your prayers.
