Union Gospel Mission Ministries, a member of the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions, was established in Spokane, Washington, in 1951 as a non-profit, Christian relief and rehabilitation agency. What began as a simple "soup kitchen" has evolved into a 24 hours-a-day, seven days-per-week social service agency whose purpose is to provide for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of people in crisis.
The Union Gospel Mission conducts its programs with a Christian, evangelistic purpose. The Articles of Incorporation state: "Our aim is not free meals, but freed persons; not free beds, but freed beings." The Mission operates with the belief that lasting rehabilitation occurs as spiritual issues are resolved.
The Men's Mission has served Spokane's homeless men since 1951. The present facility was completed in 1990 and houses up to 200 guests at 1224 E. Trent, just east of downtown Spokane, Washington.
