Over a hundred years ago, five men and women felt called to dedicate their lives to the poor and disenfranchised of inner city Boston. Their desire to serve unfolded into a mission that would continue throughout and beyond the next century. The Boston Rescue Mission was founded on March 14, 1899 by these five pioneers in a tiny vacant property on 128 Merrimac Street. After a few months, they relocated to 134 Merrimac Street. Prior to the formation of the Mission, the tenants at that location had run a saloon. When the Mission became incorporated in 1904, it was then described as "a bar-room transformed into a life-saving station."
This is great way to help those in need. Boston Rescue Mission does an awesome job at helping people get off their feet. Please donate to the BRM to continue their great service. Thanks.
