$100,000 Goal


Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities (the Mission) opened its doors in 1902 as an association of St. Paul, Minnesota churches deeply concerned for the plight of dock workers, lumberjacks, and laborers flooding into the city at the turn of the century. Today, our programming has expanded dramatically to meet the evolving needs of people experiencing homelessness.

At the Mission, hope often begins with a meal in our emergency shelter. Once residents' food security and safe shelter issues are stabilized, Mission staff walk alongside residents, addressing core issues that underlie homelessness: fractured families of origin; mental health challenges, including addiction; early childhood trauma that often continues into adulthood; and lack of education and job skills. Your gifts provide life-changing basic services such as food, shelter, recovery, mental health services, and job preparation at the Mission.

Just $2.27 provides a meal and care that often becomes the first step toward getting someone off the streets.  In simple terms, your support changes the lives and basic needs of people in our community every day.
