A Message from the Executive Director

The Hits were a hit!

“The Hits” was presented on Saturday, May 18, at 7 pm. Hosted by the Olympia Union Gospel Mission at the Washington Center, our talented dental community and friends, Debbi’s Dance, vocalists Gayla Duerr, Peter Adams, and Talia and Cole Hastie, performed a memorable show. They showcased their talent by delivering show-stopping performances of chart-toppers from legends like Cab Calloway, Frank Sinatra, Beatles, Carpenters, James Taylor, Aretha Franklin, Lauren Daigle, and more.

This memorable evening was led by the 18-member Jazz Senators, directed by Ben McDonald. The event benefitted the Mission’s No Fee Dental Clinic.

Women’s Recovery Programs

Renewed Hope

Homelessness takes on many forms, and for women, and women with children it may be fleeing from dangers of trauma, domestic violence, or the ravages of drug addiction. The Mission’s residential short and long-term programs for women provide stability and renewed hope in a Christ-centered environment.

Recovery Programs

Through group recovery meetings, bible studies, individual counseling, and life skills training, single men, single women and women with children learn how to live free of addictions.

The Olympia Union Gospel Mission is about people – like you and me – with one big difference; the people we work with are homeless and poverty stricken. One of the ways every one of us are alike, regardless of our status, is our need for dignity, self-worth and respect. Our commitment is to respect each person we meet and to demonstrate God’s love in practical ways.
