On November 1, 1922, twenty-two churches of different denominations joined together during the Great Depression. There was one unified goal...to provide FOOD, SHELTER and HOPE to Northland neighbors in need. Union Gospel Mission (UGM) has seen many changes over the past 100 years, but what still remains are those three humble goals.
The Mission currently distributes over 4,000 nutritious meals each month. Many of the Mission's patrons come from food-challenged households. The majority of these households include children or seniors on limited incomes. Guests often rely on the meals, and groceries, distributed at the Mission to meet their nutritional needs.
In addition to the meal program, UGM operates the Martin Inn, located upstairs of the dining hall. The Martin Inn provides low-income, community housing to people of all different backgrounds. Upon arrival, residents are provided with a warm bed, stocked kitchen, free laundry and more.
The Mission provides a host of additional supportive resources. Children, seniors and families visit the Mission each day to access warm clothing, personal hygiene essentials or spiritual support.
