Provide a
pathway out of
homelessness.

When you come alongside your neighbors in need—by providing food, shelter, job training, and recovery services—you help break the cycle of homelessness, abuse, and addiction in the Inland Northwest.

Offer an end to homelessness.

No one wants to see people living on the streets.

There’s another path.

Understand
Homelessness
Today

More than 2,000 men, women, and children in the Inland Northwest are experiencing homelessness right now. Food and shelter are crucial but are not enough to break the cycle of homelessness, abuse, or addiction in a person’s life. To make a difference, we have to go deeper.

Choose
Effective
Compassion

Lives damaged by trauma, abuse, addiction, mental illness, or neglect are not healed through housing alone. Since 1951, UGM has been providing a pathway out of homelessness through a whole-person approach to physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional restoration. Recovery programs, mentorships, job training, and transitional housing options are just a few of the resources made available at UGM. 

Help
Break
the Cycle

Recurring donations provide the stability needed for UGM to reach and serve every guest with these invaluable services. When you sign up to give monthly, you’re investing in life-long change. You will have a permanent impact on local men and women working to break the cycle of homelessness and abuse in their lives.

  The gospel difference

We believe every person is created in the image of God, with immeasurable beauty and worth; that people should not be defined by their present condition or past mistakes. Healing for our brokenness begins with the heart, with connection, with understanding how much we are loved by a good God. With healing comes change, the potential for joy and meaning.
