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 addicted people on the streets in Jacksonville.

In 1970, the ministry opened a long-term substance abuse program in St. Johns County in order to meet the increasing need in the community for a residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

In 1997, the Rescue Mission moved from 901 West Bay Street to a new 12,000 square foot facility at 622 West Union Street. This new facility has greatly increased the capacity and effectiveness of care we are able to provide for the homeless. 

In August 2006, Trinity Rescue Mission Women and Children's Center opened it's doors. This 14,000 square foot Center is designed to meet the specific needs of women and mothers with children. Each day the Center provides hot meals, clean clothing, lodging and other services. Our desire is to teach and assist the homeless women and children in living responsible, productive lives. Our community's future depends upon our willingness to invest in improving the lives of others, especially our next generation.
