History

Founded in 1938, the Charlotte Rescue Mission has a long history of reaching out to the homeless and those battling addictions. Over the years, the Mission has been located in several different uptown Charlotte buildings and had several different names, but our commitment to serving the homeless and sharing the gospel of Christ has never changed. Many people who came to the Mission for help during those early years were struggling with addiction. In 1990, the Mission made a commitment to hire a Christian staff trained in professional substance abuse recovery services. With this, Charlotte Rescue Mission launched a 90-day residential program empowering individuals to move beyond cycles of homelessness and addiction to become productive citizens in the community. This program is known as Rebound and has helped thousands of men over the years. Rebound served men struggling with addiction and homelessness, but despite a staggering community need, there was no similar program for women. In 1992, Charlotte Rescue Mission launched the Dove's Nest program. Like Rebound, Dove's Nest provides comprehensive addiction recovery services for women. In 1995, Rebound's Recovery Residence opened its doors. The Recovery Residence provides opportunities for Rebound graduates to maintain long-term sobriety as they transition out of dependency on community programs and transition into self-sufficiency. In 2008, the Dove's Nest Capital Campaign was launched to expand Dove's Nest's women's addiction recovery program from a 12-bed facility to a 120-bed facility. In addition, for the first time in its history, the Mission was now able to serve children as well as their mothers. The doors of this new facility opened in July 2012. In 2016, both the Rebound and Dove's Nest programs were expanded to a 120-day program. In 2019, the Mission opened Community Matters Cafe, a full-service restaurant and coffee shop adjacent to the Rebound campus. Community Matters Cafe provides a four-month life skills training program that teaches Charlotte Rescue Mission recovery program graduates a variety of essential life and job skills that prepare them for successful transition back into the workplace. All profits from the restaurant are used to support the programs of Charlotte Rescue Mission.
