Emergency Cold Weather Shelter for the Homeless

When temperatures drop below 32 degrees, Union Gospel Mission opens our emergency overnight cold weather shelter. We can shelter up to 60 guests in our dining room overnight. We also continue to operate our day room for our homeless guests, giving them space to come in and get warm, enjoy a hot cup of coffee, a snack and lunch. We need your help! Our most needed items include coffee, blankets, sleeping bags, socks, gloves and other cold weather gear. These items can be dropped off at 3 NW Third Avenue in Portland, or you can purchase these items on our Amazon Wish List and the items will ship directly to the Mission. CLICK HERE to make a secure donation online to help provide meals and care to our homeless neighbors during the cold weather.
