Union Gospel Mission

Every night, there are roughly 5-6,000 homeless individuals on the streets of Dallas. Each has a name, a story, and needs more than simply a $5 bill can provide.

Poverty is about much more than money. Our friends need immediate needs met, for sure, but they also need relationships with people who can help speak into their situation with truth, love, and practical wisdom. They need opportunities to hear, respond to, and apply the gospel - for ongoing heart transformation and opportunities for even more intensive discipleship and accountability.

For a long time now, Watermark has teamed up with Union Gospel Mission, one of the area’s largest and oldest providers of faith-based emergency housing and support for homeless men. UGM provides emergency shelter, food, and clothing - but spiritual growth opportunities (both short-term and long-term) are part of the package, too.

Serve with Union Gospel Mission This Season

Serve with UGM, one of Watermark's longest running partners, to connect with men in one of their darkest hours - and yet often at the point where they've decided they're ready for lifechange. A shelter like UGM isn't "rock-bottom" for many of these men - it's the point at which they've decided to find help, encouragement, and hope. Contact ugm@watermark.org for more info, or ways to plug in next year.
