Mike lived on a narrow disability income after decades of backbreaking manual labor. When he became homeless, he’d run out of alternatives in his native North Idaho.
“I’d been staying in my car. I didn’t feel safe. … This was the only option, to come to Spokane.”
At the Union Gospel Mission, Mike found security, acceptance, and guidance to take his next step forward. “All my needs were met when I got here. The food, the shelter, and the fellowship. … I tried to do it on my own, and I couldn’t do it.”
