United States Missions
According to End Homelessness, there are an estimated 553,742 people homeless in the United States. Approximately a quarter of these are children experiencing homelessness on a given night.
Across United States, numerous charitable organisations work tirelessly to bridge the gap for America’s homeless. Across every state homeless missions run by a variety of religious denominations offer food, clothing and shelter to the homeless in times of crisis.
The Rapid Relief Team humbly supports the noble efforts of America’s homeless missions with catered lunches and dinners – along with necessary supplies for the homeless. Below are a couple of examples of the many homeless missions that RRT support.
