Union Gospel Mission - Seattle WA

Homeless shelters or missions are temporary residences.

:  :  :

There are two missions

for the homeless in downtown Seattle

that have been in place for decades

(though there are others as well these days).

One is Bread of Life and the other is Union Gospel Mission.

Both are in Pioneer Square,

long considered the skid road area of town.

:  :  :

These christian organizations

seek to lessen the desperation of homeless people

by providing hot meals, a place to sleep out of harm’s way,

and the gospel of Jesus Christ,

providing for their bodies,

and souls.

This image of UGM

was taken very early in the morning,

while light rain was falling.

Interesting that the rain on my windshield blurred out the

figures of two men standing at the mission, creating a visual representation of

how most people view the homeless,

sort of a  ‘don’t look, don’t help,’ attitude making the

homeless ‘non-people.’

If we recognize them as people who have or could have value,

then our hearts would compel us to do

something to help their

plight.
