Darkness to Hope

Restoring homeless & hurting lives through God’s love

Providing Rescue, Recovery, Restoration and Re-engagement for men experiencing homelessness, addiction, poverty or other life challenges.

Since 1950, Union Rescue Mission Wichita has worked to offer men experiencing homelessness and the associated challenges, restoration through Christ. Our services and programs help them find healing.

2023 Year in Review

We invite you to visit our facility, take a tour, and experience the love and care occurring at URM – thanks to your giving and serving. You will get a firsthand look at what God is doing here! URM provides our guests with clean clothing, meals, shelter in a safe, warm environment, bible study, educational programs, job preparation, and minor medical help when its needed. We strive to be so much more than a homeless shelter … salvation and life change happens here! We had 92 decisions for Christ made this last year!  Praise the Lord.
