SHARING THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST: Restoring - Transforming
The Olympia Union Gospel Mission
began its work with the homeless and needy in 1995
through a street ministry outreach.
Sandwiches and hot drinks were offered in an atmosphere
of love and acceptance. Our goal was and still is to share God's
love in practical ways.
Today, the Olympia Union Gospel
Mission has numerous programs. Hundreds of men and
women are served each week and OUGM is still sharing God's love in
practical ways. At the same time, we work to help individuals
break the cycle of homelessness and poverty.
Meals, hygiene and addiction recovery services are ways we reach
out to make a
difference in people's lives. Hot meals is one of the most powerful tools for sharing the
Gospel with people in need because food is a tangible way to
show God's love

HELPING CHANGE OUR
SOCIETY - One
Person at a Time
The Olympia Union Gospel Mission is
about people - like you and me - with one big difference; the
people we work with are homeless and poverty stricken. One of
the ways every one of us are alike, regardless of our status, is our
need for dignity, self-worth and respect.
Our commitment is to respect each
person we meet and to demonstrate God's love in practical ways.
There are many reasons why people
become homeless and poor. We do not judge their reasons.
Rather, we seek to help them find ways to become godly, productive
members of society. In order for us to accomplish this
task, many things must happen. There must be a place where
men, women, boys and girls feel safe and find they are loved and
accepted as they are.
