The Problem

When men and women come to The Union Mission Ministries, they are broken. Our intake process is like a “triage” center where we comfort and encourage them, minister to their urgent needs and help them identify a long-term plan to empower them to re-enter the workforce and society. Successful, sustainable life change comes at a cost – a cost that is increasing.

The Solution

Our workforce development programs have proven to be tremendously successful in changing lives. Our Damascus Destination Program for men over 26, David Development Program for men 18-26, and our new Women’s Shelter Discipleship Program, RISE, are designed for residents who are ready to take the next courageous step in their journey. These programs provide basics like food, clothing, housing, and other essentials including Bible studies, life-skills classes, and comprehensive job readiness training. The goal is holistic healing – physically, mentally, and spiritually. In just six short months, residents who are willing to work hard can begin to enjoy productive, meaningful, and self-sufficient lives.
