"It was inspirational. It gave us a change in food. It was something special and definitely made people smile," says Jeremy.

1,700 hungry men, women and children served on #NationalClamChowderDay  Special thanks to Sea Watch International and Coeur d' Alene Baking Co. of Kent for serving and sponsoring today's meal.

Meet Chris. He graduates our #recovery program tonight!

Lent is a time to ready our hearts for Easter! We invite you to walk alongside Hope Place resident, Kristy, with our online devotional. 

Each week, we'll reflect on select Scriptures, be guided in prayer and experience Kristy's transformation in her own prayers, written out to God.

Amazing acts of love on Seattle's streets!

"Search & Rescue would not be the same without this man. His heart is so beautiful. Watching him out there inspires me to be a better person every single time. And once again, he gave away the shoes off his own feet. I love you Richard," shares volunteer and photographer Amy.

Show love to homeless men and women on our streets at www.UGM.org. ‪
