The Eugene Mission

Address
1542 West 1st Avenue

The Eugene Mission is a homeless shelter with programs for men, women, and mothers and children.

The Eugene Mission is sober 'wellness shelter' for the homeless.  All services at the Eugene Mission – food, shelter, clothing, toiletries, showers, and social service case management – are offered free of charge.  Each guest is asked to perform a one-hour daily household chore to contribute to the community living environment.  A one-year, faith-based residential relapse prevention/recovery Life Change program is also offered free of charge for those who are interested.
Office Hours: Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

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!

The ways of wellness: -Serving thousands of men, women and children each year -Safe and sober environment -700+ nutritious meals served per day/250,000 meals served per year -350-400 beds occupied each night/140,000 beds per year -Free clothing, toiletries, laundry, showers, household goods, furnishings -Assertive Social Services Case Management/Counseling -Life Change Relapse Prevention/Recovery Program Offered Free of Charge -Sustainable grounds – chickens, eggs, bees, gardens -The “Good News” of Jesus Christ shared in word and action -Faith, Hope and Love abound!

User Answers

  1. Leave what you are as you go in. Meaning, you are not alone. It's a been there done that moment. Made some friends there. Of all races. From all over the country. And you meet jerks. Also don't be shy about taking a shower with 8 other guys. And sleeping in a barracks style.

How long can you stay here?

User Answers

  1. I stayed there 1 year and 1 week. I'm a Vietnam veteran, so I used my Vets to help me get out. But for other guys I really don't know how long you can stay there. I assume they would encourage you to be more independent. Without falling backwards.

    I am not a guest at the Eugene mission but, my brother is and I feel compelled to say since he arrived a week ago and I I've been on the phone with him every day since, how extremely happy he is!! It makes my heart swell with joy to know my brother is finally taken care of. Thank you Jesus! Thank you to ALL OF the staff and volunteers! You ALL have touched my brother and his sister and family far away in another state! He hasn't been this happy and full of nourishment ... God and food in a long time. Blessings to ALL AND YOUR FAMILIES
