What We Do
We search. We listen. We walk alongside. We offer hope.
We work to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
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 serve and care for thousands of homeless and hurting people each day throughout King County.
Motivated by our Christian faith, the Mission provides extensive 360-degree support and recovery services for homeless men, women, and children throughout King County.
For more than 85 years and as God allows us to continue, we are King County’s first response for homelessness.
