YUGM exists to provide Christ-centered rescue, recovery and restoration to men, women and children in need.
The Yakima Union Gospel Mission has played a primary role in dealing with Yakima’s homeless since 1936. Developing programs and opportunities to help meet the growing and changing needs of an impoverished Yakima Valley is necessary for the health of our community. The Yakima Union Gospel Mission is an autonomous Faith Based 501c3 non-profit organization that serves central Washington. We are associated with other missions through the Association of Gospel Rescue Missions. The AGRM organization links us with other organizations across the state and country that have like values and mandates to reach out and share the Love of Christ to the poor, the addicted, the homeless and the lost through practical programs that meet their needs.
All of our services at the Yakima Union Gospel Mission include our Mens, Women and Family Shelter for emergency shelter, daily meal program, food bank, Clothing/Furniture distribution, The Care Center Medical and Dental Facilities, Men’s and Women’s New Life Drug and Alcohol Recovery Programs, Madison House Community Youth Center, New Hope Catering, eLife Educational Computer Classes, Distribution Center, Recycling Center, Lost Creek Village camp ground and conference center, and The Olde Lighthouse Shoppe Thriftstore. Each branch of the Yakima Union Gospel Mission works to serve the entire individual, feeding the body, restoring the mind and reviving the spirit through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
