Dear Friends and Partners of the Winston-Salem Rescue Mission,
Last November we shared the news with you that activities at our Alpha Acres facility in Yadkin County had been temporarily suspended in order to review and reset the Alpha Acres recovery program. Part of the review involved an assessment of facilities and personnel needs before we could reopen Alpha Acres and both effectively and confidently operate the men’s program. This lengthy review revealed serious needs that were beyond the capacity of the Rescue Mission to bear.
After earnestly seeking the Lord’s guidance, through prayer and counsel, the Board of Directors has made the decision to pursue the selling of Alpha Acres.
Those who were looking to enter into the Transformers Program at Alpha Acres will receive the same resources offered in the Transformers program at our New Life Center.
We truly praise the Lord for the many lives that have been transformed through Alpha Acres and thank you, our faithful supporters, for your investing in this ministry through the years. We trust the Lord will impress upon you who specifically gave towards Alpha Acres to continue partnering with the Rescue Mission as we continue to minister to those who come to us for help.
For those of you who have not recently visited or have never been to our downtown campus, we extend an invitation to schedule a tour as it would be our privilege to show you around the Rescue Mission.
We truly thank you once again for partnering with us through your prayers, volunteering and giving. We have strong hope the Lord will supply our needs to help hurting men find healing through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and hope through the new life He gives them.
Interim Executive Director
