Get Help Now
Do you know a friend, family member, or a complete stranger who is hungry, without a home, being abused, struggling with an addiction, or in crisis? If this is a dire emergency, please call 9-1-1 or social services in your local community. Otherwise, we encourage you to contact the helpful staff at an AGRM-member rescue mission.
When you call or write, explain your need as concisely as possible and allow the rescue mission staff to direct you to the appropriate personnel. (Note that AGRM missions are autonomous and titles/positions vary from mission to mission.) Missions do not charge for inquiries. If for some reason a mission is unable to serve you, ask them to recommend another agency in your area that can.
