The Eugene Mission – A Wellness Center for the Homeless Welcome to Eugene’s Mission! We are not a homeless shelter in the traditional sense. While we certainly provide the homeless with food and shelter – and do so with an abundance of God’s love – the Eugene Mission’s ultimate goal is to provide holistic long-term solutions that lead to the wellness of its guests. We are positive but assertive with our guests, asking as much of them as they do of us. We arm them with the skills they need to move forward, while inspiring and motivating them to do so.
Who stays at the Mission? Primarily people who are homeless, whether temporarily or chronically. Guests come to us for a variety of reasons, including job loss and unemployment, eviction, mental illness, physical difficulties, domestic violence, prison release, and addiction to drugs and alcohol. Whatever the reason, we welcome our guests with open arms, eager to provide practical and loving services, hope, and a fresh start. We first offer hope by meeting of our guests’ immediate practical needs. Once stabilized, the real work begins – the work of transitioning our guests out of homelessness back to productive members of society!
