Feeding Hope. Changing Lives. One Life at a Time. When you give a meal at UGM, you give so much more… Union Gospel Mission is determined to transform communities affected by poverty, homelessness, and addiction—one life at a time. We’re accountable to living out this vision and believe in pursuing it with integrity and excellence. As well as recording every time we serve a meal or connect someone to a service in the community, we’re now recording when our guests achieve significant milestones because of these referrals—milestones like finding a place to call home, obtaining employment, and maintaining his or her new life. With integrity in mind and determination at heart, we’ve begun tracking dozens of short and long-term results. Monitoring program outcomes means that as we develop our vision for the future, UGM can impact more lives with evidence-based intention and care.
