Our team is out on the streets day and night, connecting with people in dire need. We provide emergency help — a warm blanket, dry socks, and snacks — plus an invitation back to our shelter for a safe night’s sleep.
Your gift helps people like Robin. Our Search & Rescue teams delivered food and blankets to Robin. She eventually started coming to our day center to shower and have a meal, and once in a while would stay at the overnight shelter when it was rainy and cold.
One night, Robin got into our Search & Rescue van and told the team she was ready to, “get off the streets.” Health issues were causing her pain and symptoms that were difficult to handle on her own. She applied for housing and has the key to a new apartment!
Each item in this Gift Catalog is representative of the needs of Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.
