"Here at Trinity West and our work at Renovo, we consider our partnership with the Mission as one of the most valuable ones we have. The work that the Mission does is something we couldn’t do on our own. For us as a church family to be able to come along side graduates as they transition back into the community via Renovo, provides blessings for all, in abundance." TRINITY WEST SEATTLE

“It is a privilege to partner with the Mission to bring the love of Jesus and the hope of new life to our homeless neighbors. It’s one of our greatest joys to see people meet Jesus, have their lives restored, and live with new hope, identity, and purpose. We highly recommend partnering with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.” — RAINIER VALLEY CHURCH

“Faith Church has worked over the last number of years alongside Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission to help make a difference in the lives of those who are facing homelessness in our community. Faith Church can’t say enough about the all-in partnership the Mission and their team have shown us. Supporting, resourcing, equipping, training, and doing whatever they can to help mobilize our people to be engaged with the mission of reaching the least reached in our community. If you are looking for a ministry partner to become engaged in your community, look no further than the Mission to make that happen.” — FAITH CHURCH, KENT
