"The Union Mission is a faith-based organization providing resources to those without shelter and assisting them in building self-reliance leading to a transition to safe, affordable, and sustained housing."
The Union Mission was founded in 1987 by a single individual who, in conjunction with the Latrobe Ministerial Association, saw the need for a short-term residential facility for disadvantaged men. The Mission would be a place where housing and support could be offered for those experiencing economic and/or personal crises in their life.
Men do not just "stay" at the Mission. They are oriented into the community with a broader purpose and given opportunities for ongoing counseling, fellowship, group activities and much more. It is a place where both our men and our neighbors see past the erroneous stigmas attached to homelessness and invite one another to a more accurate understanding of the dignity of the human person.
