Jesus said “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

(LUKE 4:18-19)

Gateway Rescue Mission serves the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless. We do this by providing tasty, nutritious meals for the body, a clean bed for the night, and a message of hope in Jesus Christ for the soul.

We also offer programs for those seeking biblical life transformation.

At Gateway Rescue Mission, we preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to the poor. The Bible proclaims a message of release to those in captivity to drugs, alcohol and poverty; recovery of sight to the spiritually blind, freedom to those oppressed by mental illness; and the glorious hope that we live in the favorable year of the Lord.

We can’t save anyone.  That’s God’s job.  Our job is to be a vessel.  That’s what we are at Gateway Rescue Mission…God’s vessel to pour out His mercy on those whom He will show mercy right here in Jackson, Mississippi.

At Gateway Rescue Mission we have three rules.  No drugs or alcohol, no violence, and no threats of violence.


Gateway Rescue Mission has served as a beacon of hope for the homeless and hungry since 1948.  The IRS identifies Gateway Rescue Mission as a 501c3 nonprofit and a religious organization.

We are a member in good standing of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.

Gateway Rescue Mission is supported by financial contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations, churches and the sales of donated items at thrift stores in Pearl and Clinton.  We accept no government or United Way funds.  We can’t do it without you!
