"They're another mission that's a rescue mission, our philosophies are very similar. We would never go in to competition with the people in the community just because we'd never want to see them hurt or damaged and for them to come in and just do that.. for us, it's just not a good thing," says Matt Miller, Rome Rescue Mission executive director.
Eyewitness News reached out to the Syracuse Rescue Mission. Alan Thornton, executive director, says,"It is not our goal to take donations from the Rome Rescue Mission. We welcome the opportunity to work with the Rome Rescue Mission and other non-profits who want to partner with us to end hunger and homelessness in their community."
