“I have no money, I’m living in a shelter, but I am content.”

Hope for a better tomorrow

Hundreds of homeless and hurting men, women, and children with nowhere else to turn come through the doors of the Mission every day. Their stories are as different as they are. A hot meal, a place to shower, clean clothing, and a safe place to lay their heads helps to restore dignity and self-respect. Most of all they find hope for a better tomorrow.

Michele

“I’m so grateful that there’s a place that makes me feel safe … I’m grateful to the donors who provide us a place to stay, food to eat; nourishing for our minds, bodies and spirits. I couldn’t ask for a better place to stay at this season of my life. I’m totally grateful!”

“If it wasn’t for the Mission, I’d probably be in another shelter who doesn’t care like they do here or out on the streets or in the mechanic shop office which isn’t good for my baby. I would have done what I would have had to do. There are more people worse off than I am.”

Martin

“If not for The Union Mission I’d be on the street. I was destitute, not knowing where to turn and heavily doubting God every day. I’m extremely grateful to be here.”

“When my health started failing and arthritis spread all through my body, I couldn’t stand for long periods of time and had to quit the work I was doing. Being out of work, trying to pay bills, is how I got in this predicament.”
