Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, established in 1878, opens our doors everyday with a welcoming spirit of Christian compassion, walking alongside the homeless, hungry, and hurting of Philadelphia so that they may experience the love of God by acts of mercy, dignity, and respect. More than just a safe space, warm bed, and a hot meal, we empower everyone we serve through deep, intentional engagement with compassionate programs and trauma-informed care – activating their God-given potential for life transformation.
Sunday Breakfast offers a variety of services to those we serve such as 3 meals and day, 365 days a year and 30-day emergency housing. In addition to these, we also offer a men’s transitional housing program. During a resident’s stay with us, they have access to services such as case management, spiritual care, laundry, and hot showers. This ensures we meet the practical, spiritual, and relational needs of every individual.
As the lowest barrier shelter in Philadelphia, Sunday Breakfast does not turn guests away due to criminal background, one of the many barriers of a returning citizen. We also take a very individualized approach to case management which allows us to work with someone like a returning citizen to understand what their most successful next step may be, whether that is finding a job, restoring broken relationships and rebuilding support systems, or a variety of other circumstances.
The best way to get involved and get to know Sunday Breakfast better is to sign up to serve a meal. Head to sundaybreakfast.org to sign up to volunteer, to give, or to read some of the real stories of our guests and their life transformation.
