How can I help the homeless in Seattle?

You can volunteer! Volunteering with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission is more than a service opportunity. It's the chance to give hope, healing, and life-saving help.

Here are 6 ways to volunteer:

Our volunteer opportunities have been drastically curtailed during the Covid-19 pandemic. However, we are anxious to welcome volunteers back as soon as we safely can! As guidelines change and restrictions are reduced, we will be re-launching our volunteer programs. Please stay tuned for new volunteer opportunities in the very near future. We can’t wait to see you!
