Programs and Services
Sick at heart, alone and often suffering the devastating effects of drug use, men come to Union Mission looking for help, hope, and a chance to start their lives over again. They find all three in our Men's Program.
This long-term residential program offers men a safe environment in which to grow spiritually while healing from addiction and other destructive behaviors through one-on- one counseling, case management, and educational and life-skills classes.
Up to 18 men reside in our facility, where they receive the tools they need to grow strong emotionally, spiritually, academically and physically, through courses like Overcoming Crisis, Codependency, Anger Management, Financial Management, Life Skills, Computer Skills, GED Preparation, and Bible Study.
Union Mission does everything possible to eliminate discouraging roadblocks and give our homeless residents every opportunity for success:
-Safe shelter and an address where they can be contacted for employment
-Appropriate clothing for interviews, along with instruction in personal hygiene
-Job-skills training, resume writing, and interview coaching
-Necessary credentials for employment
-Transportation to training and interviews
-Christ-centered counseling and character-building programs
-Spiritual encouragement and moral support

Monthly Food Distribution and Community Meals
Every 30 days, Union Mission distributes at least 200 50-pound boxes filled with meat, fresh produce and staple items to near-homeless and working-poor families right here in the Roanoke Valley.
Each month, we provide nearly 1,000 hot, nourishing meals through our evening dinners, which are open to the community.
Without these food boxes or meals, many of our neighbors, may be forced choose between feeding their kids or paying the rent. When a family is forced to make these hard choices, they know they are welcome to share meals with us at the Mission or request a food box.
