AT Destination Church & Ministries we realize the strategic wisdom to partner with organizations that are already effective in missions. We have chosen to partner with Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
Bridgeport Rescue Mission demonstrates the love of God to hungry, homeless and addicted people throughout Fairfield County, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They fight poverty from the inside out by providing a place of hope and dignity through a year long educational program, biblical counseling and case management. They are funded by compassionate individuals, churches, businesses, organizations.
