    Charlotte Rescue Mission is a two-campus, long-term residential recovery program for folks struggling with drug or alcohol addiction. The Rebound Men’s campus can accommodate up to 150 men, and the Dove’s Nest Women’s campus can accommodate up to 90 women and 30 children. The program is free of cost to its residents, and CRM doesn’t rely on government or United Way funding. Calvary hosts chapel service every 2nd Tuesday at 7:00–8:00 PM for men at Rebound.

    Charlotte Rescue Mission offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities for individuals as well as groups. They also accept donations, from toiletry items to clothing to classroom supplies, to meet the daily needs of their residents. For details on either of these opportunities to show the love of Christ to their residents, please visit their website or contact Pastor Sibu Rajappan.

    Food Pantry Donations

    We need your help to support these families through the Calvary Food Pantry.

    NEEDED ITEMS LIST

    You may drop off donations at the Calvary Galleria on the carts outside under the awnings on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays between 9:00 AM and noon. Or drop off at the pantry cupboard in the Galleria on Sunday mornings.
