UGM Provides More Than the Basics

Union Gospel Mission shines as a beacon of hope for many who enter through the doors in Old Town Portland.

The purpose of the mission is "Feeding the hungry, restoring the addict, and loving our neighbor."

Life on the streets can prove difficult for anyone looking to meet their basic needs such as food, water and shelter. The idea of experiencing a fun outing or connecting with others is isn't a priority or even possible. Through the LifeChange program, the mission can provide the basic needs if a person wants to escape addiction, homelessness or domestic violence. But the Mission meets more than the basic needs...

In the LifeChange community, a person will not only have basic needs met, but also will have fun activities to experience.

Watch below and see how some of the residents have fun while in the LifeChange community.
