Longstanding faithfulness defines Delmer and Marie. They have been partnering with Union Gospel Mission since its earliest days.
The Union Gospel Mission exists because of an extensive community of people like you.
People who recognize that they have been blessed and want to give back.
People who take seriously God’s command to love the poor.
People who share a belief in the value of hard work and recognize that recovery, getting your life back on track, is hard work.
People who believe a community that cares for the hurting is a better community for all.
We know God's plan includes caring for the poor, and He has invited us to be a part of that work – to bind up the brokenhearted, to comfort those who mourn, to defend the weak and share our food with the hungry. Thank you for your partnership with Union Gospel Mission in 2019. Read more in our January Newsletter.

You’re afraid to leave your abuser because you don’t know where you could go with your kids and be safe.
If someone said you need to change your life, you’d probably agree. But how? Where do you start?
If we trace all the ripple effects of change back to their source, we would ultimately make our way to the Babe in the manger.
