“I had the privilege to come on staff at the Olympia Union Gospel Mission as the Life Transformations Program Counselor ministering to each client by giving them hope for the future as I point them to God’s Word.” ~ Jodi Yarbrough
The program is more than recovery; it is a place where your life can transform. A spiritually-based ministry, clients are taught and counseled with the Word of God and prayer. The primary purpose of the Men’s Transformation Program is to help men develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, while also restoring them to healthy self-sufficiency as godly, contributing members of society. A safe living environment is provided for the men as they learn leadership skills, accountability, punctuality, how to follow instructions, and how to value accomplishment. Men also learn to become valuable assets in today’s job market through life and job skills training, including financial management, computer, and various trade skills.

2022 Graduation Celebration
The Mission has a duplex for men that have completed and graduated from the program. The purpose of this residence is to provide a home for post-graduates to begin returning to the working world drug-free, while still remaining close to the Mission’s support system and services.
The Mission also operates the Jeremiah House for men. Men in this transformation program learn valuable life and work skills while breaking the bondage of addictions or other life-controlling issues.
Men’s Work Program
An essential element of the Life Transformation Program is teaching the men solid Christian ethical work standards while learning as a team to accomplish a common goal. The Men’s Work Program was adopted for the men to learn and work in a God-centered work environment. The following services are offered: yard maintenance, interior and exterior painting, power washing, moving, house cleaning, and snow removal.
To help the Men’s Work Program be successful in building men’s lives, we ask for a minimum wage of $14.49 per hour per person. You may also donate what you can if you are on a limited income.
