When someone comes to Yakima Union Gospel Mission their first stop is Emergency Services to meet their immediate physical needs. Guests can sign up for beds, eat three meals a day, take showers, get haircuts, pick out fresh clothes, and receive medical care. Counseling from our staff is also available to discuss options regarding our recovery programs or other service providers in the area.
Our lunch room is often deemed the heart of the Mission. It's amazing that one can gather so much hope from just one warm meal. We offer meals 365 days out of the year.

YUGM’s residential Men’s & Women’s New Life Programs are in-depth, year-long commitments designed to help men and women understand the root causes of their homelessness/addictions and why their lives aren’t working — to then restructure their lives on a solid biblical foundation with lasting solutions. Our programs don’t focus on just one part of a man or woman’s life; we believe it’s important to look at their physical, mental, spiritual, emotional and social well-being.
Families experiencing homelessness can come to Yakima Union Gospel Mission for food, shelter, clothing — and much more. We strive to surround hurting guests with loving care and support, and to impart a sense of security and trust so healing can begin.
A transitional program that helps clients make plans and connect to resources as they move forward from here to what comes next. Clients work one on one with case managers, attend classes on subjects such as Christian faith, finances, coping skills, and work side by side with YUGM employees to develop work experience and references. If you would like to volunteer as a case manager, or refer someone in need to apply, please contact David Wells at 509-853-4370 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Many of the individuals we serve do not have the experience or tools needed to secure a job in today's society. It is our goal to help them realize their own potential by providing them with the knowledge they need to achieve stable employment, as part of the overall recovery process. Vocational Education services are offered to our Men's & Women's New Life program participants and our Bridge program participants.
Madison House Youth
We believe God has a purpose for each of His children and Madison House stands to shine a light of hope into the lives of kids surrounded by intergenerational poverty, substance abuse and gang activity.
Since 1989, Madison House Community Youth Center has aimed to broaden the horizons of our kids by providing homework help, guidance in personal responsibility, encouragement in character growth and a knowledge of the Lord. Madison House is a safe hub for youth ages 5-20.
Dental care is a key piece to overall health and restoration, yet many individuals are without insurance or finances to afford vital services. Our Dental Care Center steps in to fill this void. With the help of a faithful group of local dentists and volunteer professionals, we provide full dental services to low-income individuals in our community.
Located in the historic Yakima Union Gospel Mission location on S. Front Street, The Olde Lighthouse Shoppe is a thrift store and antique shop filled with gently-used specialty goods. The Olde Lighthouse Shoppe invites you to help us make a positive, lasting impact in the lives of men, women and children experiencing homelessness. You can donate your new and softly used items to help stock our shelves, or you can visit our store to shop our regularly rotating inventory priced to sell.
Most of our patients have no health insurance or the ability to pay for health care services - that's why the YUGM Medical Care Center services are provided completely free of charge. The clinic averages more than 11,000 patient visits each year made possible by over 200 volunteer medical professionals.
Many products are discarded when they could be recycled. At Yakima Union Gospel Mission, before a product has finished its useful life, it is set aside and sent to our Recycling Center. Materials from the recycled items are packaged, baled, shipped and
re-manufactured into new useful products. Sometimes the item can be cleaned and restored to a useful life for a new owner - turning trash into treasure.
