Maria McAuley

Maria McAuley

Maria McAuley (1847, US - 19 September 1919), along with her husband Jerry, founded the McAuley Water St Mission in New York City. Self-described as "river thief" and "fallen woman", respectively, Jerry and Maria McAuleys' Mission became America's first rescue mission, and is now known as the New York City Rescue Mission (http://www.nycrescue.org/). The McAuleys' Mission became the first of over 300 rescue missions in the United States. All together these rescue missions form the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions (http://www.agrm.org/).
