Bridgeport Rescue Mission
Bridgeport Rescue Mission (BRM) provides hope, dignity, and life transformation to the hungry, homeless, and addicted. With an $6.2 million budget, 44 FT and 22 PT employees, BRM is in search of an Executive Director to lead the organization, ensuring the fulfillment of its mission and maintaining spiritual, financial, and reputational integrity.

Each year they provide over 650,000 meals, and over 40,000 nights of safe housing. Coupled with their addiction recovery programs, and their medical partner has served over 1100 patients in the last year, and they have partnerships with Yale and Sacred Heart Nursing programs to supervise high quality medical care. Together they are expanding hope and rebuilding lives in Bridgeport and beyond.
