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.

Help For Loved Ones

Help for Loved Ones of Addicts

There is probably not one person reading this that hasn’t been affected by someone in addiction. While the Mission, by God’s grace and love, graduated six amazing Life Transformation graduates recently, many of you must hold out hope that someday your spouse, child, sibling, or friend will seek help.

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.
