The Union Rescue Mission is the largest emergency shelter and life-change center for men in the state of Kansas. The Mission’s 28,000-square foot facility in Wichita provides overnight housing and meals for homeless men, hosts a 12-month addiction recovery and Christian discipleship program called New Beginnings and distributes free food, diapers and infant formula to families and single mothers in need.

Though statistics are but one measure of the Mission’s accomplishments, here are a couple highlights from 2017:

  • 95,329 meals served
  • 42,338 lodging nights provided (an average of 127 men per night)
  • 2,017 free food boxes distributed
  • 146 holiday food boxes distributed
  • 221 commitments to Christ & lives rededicated during evening chapel services; 47 made re-dedication; 4 men were baptized
