(ALLENTOWN, PA) –We want to congratulate October’s Clean Team Member of the Month, Tim. The Allentown Rescue Mission’s Clean Team has many great employees, but this month Tim shone the brightest.

A few years ago, Tim spent time homeless. He came to the Allentown Rescue Mission, graduated from the Transformation Program, worked on the Clean Team, and got back on his feet. He had a steady job, his own place, a life transformed. Unfortunately, he lost his job due to the pandemic. Soon his savings ran out, and he had no place to stay. Luckily, he remembered the kindness he was shown at the Allentown Rescue Mission and knew he was not alone.

“I knew I could come back to the Mission; I knew they would welcome me and do right by me,” explains Tim. The Allentown Rescue Mission shelters and helps hundreds of men each year and is always ready to receive homeless men in crisis.

Tim currently resides in the 3rd-floor dorms along with the other Clean Team members in the Allentown Rescue Mission. As an employee of the Clean Team, he helps keep the streets of Allentown clean, and his supervisor is thrilled with his work. Every day he is energized and ready to work. “Working for the Clean Team gives me the opportunity to save money to get my own place. This job is a Godsend during these difficult times”, says Tim.

The Allentown Rescue Mission wants to congratulate Tim for his hard work and remind everyone in need that they are not alone. Whatever help one may need, know that there are people and organizations out there that are happy to help. To learn more about the services the Allentown Rescue Mission provides, visit
