How my gift was used

"[Men and women] are trapped in the exact same thing that held onto me for so long, so I know the best way to reach them is to have compassion for them."

Regardless of the reason, we at Union Gospel Mission of Salem believe that every person has inherit value and can experience positive life-change.  

This is why we launched the Search & Rescue outreach ministry in 2017. This program meets homeless people where they are; in tent camps, on the streets, and in the woods and parks. Five to seven days every week they bring bottled water, coffee, protein snacks, blankets, clean socks, and more. This both helps people meet their immediate needs and start to build trust with our staff.  

Search & Rescue also offers rides to the Men’s Mission and Simonka Place for Women & Children where people can persue long-term solutions for life change.
