The people who are here were called to be here.
Volunteer Coordinator, UGM Spokane
I am proud of where I work and what we do for our community. My favorite part of working for UGM, aside from the changed lives, is the team of women I get to work with every day. We laugh together, catch each other's tears, and genuinely respect and love each other.
Client Services Manager, Anna Ogden Hall
I am grateful for the calling to serve with UGM. Each day I want to leave it better than I found it. Using the gifts our Father has blessed me with to build His Kingdom… and to meet the donors, customers, volunteers, and staff where they are to make an impact in our community together.
Retail Manager, UGM Thrift Stores
I love working here because we get to help fill a desperate need in the community that most churches aren’t equipped or able to. God is definitely at work here.
Multimedia Producer
It is a total honor to be a part of God’s work.
Retail Manager, UGM Thrift Stores
I enjoy going to work every day knowing I am helping the cause, which is to help the poor to be self-reliant members of society. I am also able to talk biblically at work with co-workers and customers as our team also unites together every morning for a daily devotional. It’s so uplifting!
Production Associate, UGM Thrift Stores
I like working at UGM because it not only allows me to serve and help the men who need change, but it is a safe place which allows me to work on the condition of my heart as well, as I also need change; it’s people in need of change helping people in need of change.
Vocational Advancement Director, Men’s Shelter
We don’t work with the homeless, but with people, one day at a time. Being able to see the miracle happen one life at a time is the most rewarding employment a person could ask for.
Men’s Shelter Manager
I can wake up in the worst mood, have the worst day, but the thought of going to work and getting the privilege to serve here makes everything better and livens up my spirit.
Production Chef, Men’s Shelter
The #1 reason I enjoy working for UGM is because we get to see the power of God at work in the lives of our residents and coworkers as we serve one another. It has been tremendous blessing to be a part of something that's so much larger than meeting my own financial needs.
Production Manager, UGM Thrift Stores
My own life is transformed because of UGM and those I work with.
