Clarification and Update Regarding Shower/Laundry Trucks


There are current media stories about Union Gospel Mission's involvement with Harbor of Hope and proposed shower and laundry trucks. We wanted to clarify and update our role with Oregon Harbor of Hope. Union Gospel Mission has been pleased to collaborate with Homer Williams and Oregon Harbor of Hope. We share a common goal of compassionate care of the homeless and finding solutions to Portland’s homeless crisis. We are in the process of internally reviewing the possibility of operating a shower truck and a laundry truck. Our assessment is not yet complete and is also subject to review and approval of our Board of Directors.

Any media questions can be directed to Stacy Kean at
