Serving the Homeless since 1892

The Union Mission’s Bashford Men’s Shelter and our Women and Children’s Shelter are dedicated to helping people overcome their homelessness and giving them a chance to start again. By first providing for their physical needs, we can then provide job- and life-skills training, emotional counseling, and spiritual support. But to transform lives forever, we need your help!

The Free Services We Provide for our Guests

Every day hundreds of men, women, and children come through our doors needing a safe place to sleep and a meal. Meeting these most basic human needs is often the first step, but not the last, to helping them get back on their feet.

Our services include:

  • Safe, emergency shelter
  • Hot, wholesome meals
  • Showers/toiletry items
  • Clean clothing and laundry access
  • Case management to overcome the causes of homelessness
  • Job-readiness, relational, and life-skills training
  • Wellness and medical care, including mental health support
  • Emotional and spiritual counseling
  • Chapel services and Bible studies
  • Day Center Services—temporarily on hiatus
