About the Organization

Union Mission exists to prevent and end homelessness in the greater Savannah area. Since its founding in 1937, Union Mission has grown from a small soup kitchen to a multi-facility organization serving the homeless population of the greater Savannah area. Today, Union Mission provides emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, behavioral health services, support for people living with HIV/AIDS,  and employment and educational services. Through our programs, individuals and families acquire the tools they need to lift themselves out of homelessness and into a brighter future.
