About Us

Partnering with churches, individuals, and organizations to maximize our effectiveness, we help the neediest of our community break the cycle of homelessness, addiction, and incarceration as men and women experience dynamic transformation in following Christ, and become contributing members of our community.

Union Gospel Mission of Salem holistically approaches homelessness. Working to help rewrite the futures of our unsheltered neighbors’ lives, UGM provides for basic needs, yet moves beyond immediate relief by teaching guests self-sufficiency, self-worth, and skills for independent living through our advanced services.

With Christ as the force behind any transformation, we trust God to see His good work through to completion as we and our community partners collaborate to change the face of homelessness, one story at a time.
