After 140 years, Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission remains focused on the individual

Around the Corner” is a PhillyCAM show that offers local social impact leaders the opportunity to share what impact their work is having on the Philadelphia area.


An estimated 6,000 people are homeless in the city of Philadelphia.

But as Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission‘s CEO knows, you can’t change that by thinking of those people as one mass.

“I think we sometimes lose ourselves in those larger numbers, and we need to keep focused on the individual and the impact that we can have one by one,” said Dick McMillen, who’s worked at SBRM for over a decade.

SBRM is a 140-year-old Christian nonprofit serving people experiencing homelessness in Chinatown North and the Philly suburbs. Its programming includes emergency shelters, free meal service, an urban farm, a furniture bank, GED prep and the year-long Overcomer Program.

Find out how SBRM has stuck to its mission of serving individuals for over a century in McMillen’s “Around the Corner” interview below.
