While we provide these emergency services to clients, we offer more than just hospitality. Beyond the basics, we guide our clients to programs, within Trinity Rescue Mission and the community, to help them permanently end the cycle of homelessness.

With your help, Trinity Rescue Mission takes hundreds of men, women, and children from a place of fear, helplessness, and feeling stuck to a place of safety, hope, and support.

Mission statement

Trinity Rescue Mission assists the homeless and displaced individuals with job training and financial assistance to help them return as productive members of society.

Statement of faith

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, ultimately authoritative Word of God. We believe there is one God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is Deity, that He was born of a virgin, that we are redeemed by His atoning death through His shed blood, that He was bodily resurrected and ascended into heaven, and that He will come again in power and great glory. We believe that individuals are saved through a direct, personal encounter with the risen Lord, at which time they are regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whom Christ indwells each believer, enabling him or her to live a godly life of obedience as he or she reaches for maturity. We believe the Holy Spirit unites all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and that together they form one body, one church.

Trinity Rescue Mission was established in 1962 by the congregation of Trinity Baptist Church and church leaders as an expression of their burden for the homeless and hurting people on the streets in Jacksonville.

Today, Trinity Rescue Mission operates as an independent, Christ-centered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Although now a separate entity, Trinity Baptist Church remains as key ministry partner of Trinity Rescue Mission.

1962-Trinity Rescue Mission opens on Bay Street in downtown Jacksonville, Florida

1970-Trinity Rescue Mission opens Freedom Farm, a long-term substance abuse program in St. Johns County, to meet the community's increasing need for a residential drug and alcohol recovery program.

1997-Trinity Rescue Mission moves from 901 West Bay Street, to a new 12,000 square foot facility at 622 West Union Street. The new facility increases the capacity and effectiveness to accomplish the mission's goal to help more people better.

2006-Trinity Rescue Mission opens the 14,000 square foot Women and Children's Center on Union Street. The facility's modern design was created to meet the specific needs of homeless women and mothers with children, an under-served demographic of homeless in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida.
