MISSION OF HOPE
UNION GOSPEL MISSION of SALEM
Mission of Hope is a new emergency shelter and recovery for the Union Gospel Mission of Salem. This much-needed facility will be located just north of downtown and will enable UGM to provide hope for those in extreme need in the form of 200 emergency shelter beds, and accommodations for an additional 80 men in various stages of recovery and restoration. The proposed 3-story 55,000 sf building will house the emergency shelter and recovery housing, with support facilities including meal and dining services, a large, airy dayroom, a community meeting room and chapel, health services, recovery classrooms, library, computer lab, lounge areas, and new administrative offices.
MLA is working closely with UGM to make sure the new facility will provide all the resources they need to effectively serve and help this population in great need, and to cost-effectively provide an excellent and well-designed project that reflects the intrinsic value of the clients they serve.
Construction is scheduled to begin in October 2019.
