I truly believe that the Mission saved my life. I came to +Seattle's Union Gospel Mission at a very dark period in my personal journey and I was touched by the volunteers, the staff and the gentlemen at Seattle’s Union Gospel mission.

To celebrate with all of the graduates of the Mission, and to thank everyone who has been such an important part of my journey, I’m donating a brand new van to the Search & Rescue team! It is my hope that this 4th van will help the Mission touch even more lives in King County.

For every man graduating from the Mission this week and in future ceremonies – Your life is always ahead of you! Focus on the things you can change, seize the day and take action!

"Thank you for this meal. Please pray for me. I need a miracle." — Roderick

There's so much power in a meal. That's why we're so thankful you gave to help feed and care for every person who walked through our doors!

"I was hollow and broken…and these people saved my life.” 
- Robert Herjavec

People.com recently interviewed Shark Tank’s Robert Herjavec about his support of the Mission, and the healing that has taken place since he visited our Men’s Shelter. We are incredibly blessed to call Robert a supporter and a volunteer, but most importantly a friend. Click below to read on about his experience and story of transformation!

Kristy is not alone in her suffering. When she came to our shelter, she was able to ask difficult questions about God and the years of abuse she endured with counselors and a supportive community of women.

Despite these trials there is wonderful joy ahead for Kristy! Read more from our ‪#‎UGMLent‬ Devotional today!

“2 years ago I was sleeping on a cardboard box. Now I'm working for the Mission getting to do the one thing I love most,” says Richard.

At our Men's Shelter graduation, we surprised Richard with a new Search & Rescue van generously donated by +Shark Tank's +Robert Herjavec! Both men share a unique bond from serving Seattle's homeless. “Robert has touched my life tremendously. He treats me like his equal, like his friend and brother. Not like someone who once slept on a cardboard box.”

Kristy asked God to do something she couldn’t do for herself. She knew it would get worse before it got better. The pain of looking honestly at herself made that clear. But she was ready for God to come in and clean her out no matter what it took.

When we say, “OK, God, do the work that needs to be done,” we ask in hope that God will take the ashes of our lives and create something beautiful. Like he did with Kristy. Like he will with you.
