Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities prepares children and youth to succeed in life through Christ-centered programming

Helping kids succeed through Christ

Since its beginnings in 1902, Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities has reached out to children and youth, showing them the love of Jesus and providing spiritual, educational, and emotional support that helps them to succeed.

We stay committed to the goal of creating disciples of Christ who value themselves and others and have the tools to succeed in school and in life. From babies to young children, the Mission loves to bless the youngest members of our Mission community and their families.

Child Development Center

Transforming kids at risk into kids with hope

109 9th Street East, St. Paul, MN 55101  | (651) 224-9970

Our Child Development Center is a safe place for young children to grow holistically through active learning centers and group activities.

Children learn to respect themselves and others and prepare to succeed in school. The program also supports parents by providing relevant resources to assist them in parenting and engaging them with “grandparent” volunteers who give them love and attention.

The program is offered to children who live at the Mission’s Naomi Family Residence or the community and is open to children ages 6 weeks to kindergarten.

See the CDC-Brochure (pdf) for hours, rates and additional information.
