Welcome to Seattle's Union Gospel Mission
We provide emergency care and long-term recovery services to hurting and homeless people in Seattle. We’ll serve, rescue and transform those in need until we’ve solved the root causes of poverty and homelessness. MORE

Search and Rescue
Dru slept outside on asphalt and cardboard boxes, covered up blankets.
Now he’s serving as the coordinator for Search and Rescue — delivering food, hot chocolate and blankets to Seattle’s homeless.
On the Street
“Men living in van aren’t often described as innovative or brilliant, but that’s what they say about Norm.”
Norm lives in his van. He says, “I can pretty much fix anything.” He's known as MacGyver on the streets, fixing junk and vehicles.
Norm approaches his life like he approaches his van, “Sure, I can fix it.”
