The Rescue Mission Of Middle Georgia
At its core, the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia is a long term life recovery program for individuals experiencing homelessness and domestic violence. Serving the Middle Georgia area for 67 years, the Mission has been a beacon of hope through Jesus Christ for thousands of people who have passed through its doors. In 1981, the Mission expanded its services to include women and children fleeing domestic violence. The Mission’s Women’s Division was the first of its kind in the Middle Georgia area, offering more than just shelter, but a way out of the cycle of violence. In addition to its residential programs, the Mission provides daily meals to transient homeless individuals every day and hosts holiday community meals with delivery to the elderly and disabled. Last year the Mission provided 22,475 nights of refuge and shelter and served 83,684 meals to the hungry and homeless of Middle Georgia.
To strengthen and expand our programs to meet the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of all who are hurting in our society. Through sharing the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and being an example of God’s love and compassion, we will be a catalyst for inconceivable life change.
Providing a Path of Hope, Redemption, and Empowerment through Jesus Christ.
Macon Volunteer Clinic
Macon Volunteer Clinic (MVC) provides free primary medical and dental care, as well as medication assistance, to actively employed, uninsured adults in Bibb County, GA who live at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. In Bibb County, 20% of adults are uninsured, compared to 11% nationally (County Health Rankings).

They are the faces of the working uninsured in Bibb County.
