Transformed lives

People walk through the doors of The Union Mission every day looking for help. Sometimes it’s just a meal or a bed. Sometimes it’s love and encouragement to take the first steps toward a fresh start. Our Stories of Hope show how others have found help here. You can, too!

Day Services: ON HIATUS

The Day Centers in our Bashford Men’s Shelter and our Women and Children’s Shelter offer help to homeless neighbors who are not already Union Mission guests. Case managers provide walk-up program referrals, cafeteria meals, shower, laundry, and computer access, and more.

PLEASE NOTE: Day Centers services are currently on hiatus. For information, please contact us at 757-627-8686 (Bashford Men’s Shelter, ext. 200) (Women and Children’s Shelter, ext. 331).

Need Prayer?

Our Prayer Team intercedes regularly for our shelter guests, our donors, our community, and our staff. If you have a prayer request, please submit this form.
