What We Do

Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities helps people facing homelessness find a way off the streets for good.





The Mission provides the following resources for men, women, and children in the community

Addiction recoveryGiving hope and healing to men and women so they can get their lives back.

Mental health resources. We provide a mental health clinic onsite to remove the barriers to getting needed therapy.

ChaplaincyThe Mission embeds chaplains in every program to provide spiritual support and encouragement to visitors and students.

Discipleship. In all of our programs, our goal is to create followers of Jesus Christ. Students and guests are encouraged in their faith through Chapel services, Bible studies, devotions, and more.

Education and job trainingAll students in full-time programming attend our LifeNet Education and Job Training program, which prepares students to successfully re-enter the workforce. The program provides general education diploma (GED) preparation and college or career readiness.

Food and shelterThe Mission provides meals 3 times a day, emergency shelter, and transitional housing to guests. We serve anyone who comes through our doors.

Medical care. Health care is provided at our mental health clinic through Community Health Services. Basic care is provided free of charge.

Women and childrenThe Mission’s Naomi Family Residence cares for women and moms with kids ages birth-10. Most suffer the effects of addiction, homelessness, addiction, or other traumas. NFR provides hope and healing to families.
