What We Do

We search. We listen. We walk alongside. We offer hope.

We work to break the cycle of homelessness and addiction.

It all starts with dignity — in the form of a blanket, a hot shower, a home-cooked meal, a warm place to sleep, and friendship.

It continues with addiction recovery, one-on-one counseling, and long term solutions.


Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission started in 1932 to feed and care for those suffering from the Great Depression. 

From a simple, borrowed soup kettle, we now love and care for thousands of homeless and hurting people each day throughout greater Seattle. 

We want everyone to know, no matter their circumstances, they are loved and cared for, by us and by God.
