"We’ll be there every step of the way. One day, you can go out with us on Search & Rescue to pay it forward. But for now, you just take the steps to get yourself healthy. This recovery program can change your life...you can do this!”

“Thank you very much. I just need to get off the streets. I have no words, thank you.”

(Gary, on the streets of Seattle)

Is homelessness in Seattle solvable?

"It is, but people have to be willing to help," shares President Jeff Lilley. Though people in Seattle tend to give money to homeless people directly, it might often be better to support a local organization that, in turn, will provide services and immediate needs.

"We should swing for the fences," Lilley said. "As long as there's one more person out on the streets suffering, we should try."

Compared to some cities, Seattle is behind in its efforts to fix its homeless problem.

"Thank you for giving me back my life!" Watch Alaina share her story. www.ugm.org/watchvideo

Alaina was living in a homeless camp. She didn't know anyone. As another fight broke out in the camp, she crouched deeper into the corner of her nylon tent. She was afraid and hungry.

That's when Alaina came to the Mission. "My first meal was so good. Home cooked. It felt like home," says Alaina.

Happy 4th of July!

Take time on this special day for America to celebrate what independence means to you. Our men and women in recovery are giving thanks for this country and their freedom from addiction.

"It has been a really hot week, I'm glad there is water here. You need it to survive," says Ronnie on the street.

Temps are expected to hit 90 degrees this week. Seattle's homeless are at risk in dangerous heat!

Will you help these thirsty men and women by giving right now? Your gift of $10 provides cold water and care for 10 homeless people. Thank you!

The busiest season is almost here! Homeless people need your help. "Gloves, scarves, jackets...we all need these things. And because we are outside we need them to live."

Meet us at Kent Meridian High School and get a bag of cookies from Coeur d'Alene Bakery of Kent for each coat you donate Saturday, August 15 from 10:00am-2:00pm.

“Through my addiction, my family started contacting me, ‘Aaron, we miss you. We love you.’ I was living in my car. It was a dark place in my life. I first came to the Mission because of my brother,” remembers Aaron.

So proud of Aaron’s determination to battle his addiction and finish our recovery program! “Graduation means I accomplished something. The Mission has opened my eyes to so much beauty,” he says.

Join us for graduation at +Downtown Cornerstone Church on Thursday, July 30th @ 6:30pm.

We're handing out free water to Seattle's homeless!

“We are doing this as long as the temperatures are above 80 degrees. So we are planning to do this all week long,” Scott Cleveland said.

“When you have no place to cover yourself, you know, to go in to cool off and it can be really bearing down on you. You get sunburned, you get dehydrated," says Geneva.

Our volunteers went into action last night — offering cold water, sunscreen and the chance to get off the streets for good.

Today's forecast is dangerously high for Seattle's homeless. Please, give now during this hot weather. www.ugm.org/coldwater

"Access to water is really hard," says Sam.

Heat wave in Seattle threatens our  homeless neighbors! Our volunteer teams are handing out ice cold water, sunscreen and bug spray. We're also opening a cooling center for our homeless at risk! 

Please help now. www.ugm.org/coldwater
