Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities offers shelter to those experiencing homelessness or addiction
Support that leads to self-sufficiency.

Homelessness can happen to anyone. A job loss, a long-term disability, divorce, abuse the reasons for homelessness are as different as the people who come through our doors.
At Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities we offer more than a safe night of sleep. We provide time to heal and the tools to rebuild a life. Our Christ-centered programs care for the whole person. Like the Good Samaritan in the Gospel of Luke, we meet immediate needs and care for people until they can get back on their feet.

The Discipleship program teaches men how to rebuild their lives on biblical principles. Students attend classes to grow their faith and improve their academic skills while developing good habits in communication, conflict resolution, and problem solving. All students work at the Mission so they gain experience for re-entering the workforce.

    Almost impossible to get straight and accurate information. People working there trying to act like bad asses. Most people I talked to were immature and stupid and unable to answer questions coherently.
