Study this site to understand our facilities plan and mission, as well as SERVICES (which must, at a minimum, include FREE test preparation, interview prep and career counseling). We are presently buying and accepting donations of properties and facilities worldwide, and in all major US cities, States and counties/ parishes, as well as throughout Canada and South America, with the objective of opening Pastoral Rescue Missions in each locale.
The facilities in Pastoral Rescue Missions are modeled after the Bahá'í Mashriqu’l-Adhkár concept, as well as early Christian Rescue Mission blueprints.Abdu’l-Bahá referred to the dependencies to be established as part of the Mashriqu’l-Adhkár complex as including a hospital, a drug dispensary for the poor, a travelers’ hospice, a school for orphans, a home for the infirm and disabled, a university for advanced studies, and "other philanthropic buildings" open to people of all races, ethnic backgrounds, and religions.
These dependencies were later described by Shoghi Effendi, in general terms, as "institutions of social service" that relieve suffering, sustain the poor, and provide shelter, solace, and education. In early Christian times, especially in South America, a Christian "mission" included a hospital, school and church as well as food, clothing and shelter. Muhammad also said that the greatest act in the sight of God is to help the needy and poor.
