Transforming lives with hopeCommunity_Assistance_DSC_7108

Poor families, the disabled, and the elderly face challenges daily trying to care for themselves and their families. It’s often hard to put food on the table or provide clothes for the children. We are here to help!

About_homelessness3Community Assistance Program

The Union Mission is committed to helping the poor in our community by providing food, clothing, furniture, and household items through donations received by generous people in the community. We also minister to their spiritual needs by offering to pray with them and sharing the Gospel of Christ with each person. For information contact Cindy Reinhardt, Community Assistance Coordinator at (757) 627-8686 ext. 414.


Reaching Romania


In the late 1990’s the Lord placed a burden on Dr. Ted Bashford’s heart (Executive Director 1956-2008) for the hurting people of Romania. The first team traveled there in the year 2000. Since that time, God has accomplished much: many lives have been saved through the power of the Gospel; medical and vision clinics have been provided; food and clothing has been distributed; and pastors and women have been trained to minister to their people. In 2017, the first children’s home was opened to care for five orphans. The children’s home plans to expand to include more children in the years to come.

Donations Needed

Donations of non-perishable food, clothing, furniture, and household items are given to the poor, elderly, and disabled in our community through our Community Assistance Program. We also provide similar items to the homeless men, women, and children while in our shelters and once housing is secured to give them a fresh start. All items are given at no cost to the recipient.
