About ARW

What is American Rescue Workers?

ARW is a church and non-profit organization that provides spiritual and material aid to those in need. We seek to impact and help change the lives of those who may be overlooked and neglected by society, or those in need of spiritual guidance. This includes the homeless population in the Baltimore region, those struggling with addictions, impoverished children/families, or those who feel hopeless and downtrodden due to life challenges. Our mission is simple: to love and serve Jesus Christ through serving others.
