United States Mission - Seattle, WA
931 N 104th St
Seattle, WA 98133
Description: Our purpose is to provide our residents with a long term clean and sober home with quality meals and a self-help work program that provides each person with the opportunity of turning their lives around.
We have discovered, in working with the homeless since 1962, that the problem is far from confined to the mentally ill and addicted, but extends across all boundaries of age, background or race.
While we are a religious corporation, we are strictly dedicated to service.
Belief in any faith or method of worship is never a requirement for the men and women entering our program. What is required is a sincere desire to get off the streets for good and return to society in a productive and positive way.
The Congregation of the United States Mission is supported entirely by the generosity of individuals and corporations in the community we serve through Door-to-Door fund raising by our resident/members. We do not ask for or receive any money from federal, state or city agencies.
Aside from the obvious benefit of keeping our doors open and our program viable, working for a minimum of four hours per day instills in our residents, good work habits, enhanced communication skills and the pride which comes from helping the program which is helping them until they can achieve full time employment and self-sufficiency.
While the United States Mission is a religious corporation we are strictly dedicated to service. The Mission respects the beliefs of all its residents/members and would not presume to instruct anyone in matters of faith or ritual.
Volunteers Requests by United States Mission: Currently we have no volunteer opportunities as we are a transitional housing and work program.
Donation Requests by United States Mission: Currently at our Seattle location we are a men\'s program so for a clothing donation please make sure articles are for men. Food donations; canned, dry, meats and bread are always gladly accepted and appreciated. Monetary donations can be made as well and are 100% tax deductible as we are a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that had never asked for or received any form of local, state or federal funding at the taxpayers expense.
