The Durham Rescue Mission was founded in November 1974 by Dr. and Mrs. Ernie Mills with one goal in mind: to mend shattered lives by restoring families and giving hope in Durham, Raleigh and Chapel Hill. They’ve remained dedicated to this mission for the past 44 years. It began in a small, two-story house on the corner of North Holman and East Main Street in Durham, NC, with just enough space to provide shelter for up to a dozen men. After only a short amount of time, they were running out of space to meet the needs of everyone coming through our doors. Over the last few decades, their ministry has grown tremendously. Today, their Durham homeless shelter and urban rescue mission has room to house and provide food, vocational training, counseling and much more to 400 men, women and children in the Triangle area.
