Wayside Cross Ministries Endowment Fund

Established 1991

Wayside Cross Rescue Mission of Aurora was founded in 1928 (just west of its current location) to provide food, clothing and shelter to the needy.

It was formed through the efforts of the Aurora Ministerial Alliance and many lay representatives of various churches.

The agency is located on East New York Street in Aurora and offers five areas of service: shelter and services for the homeless, material aid to the poor, work rehabilitation for men, camping programs for disadvantaged youth and gospel ministries to prisoners.

Wayside Cross also manages resale stores which sell clothing, furniture and household goods.
