Maria McAuley (1847 – September 19, 1919) is an American missioner who, along with her husband Jerry, founded the McAuley Water Street Mission in New York City. Self-described as "river thief" and "fallen woman", respectively, Jerry and Maria McAuley's Mission became America's first rescue mission, and is now known as the New York City Rescue Mission. 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.
