Community Ministries

At Union Gospel Mission of Salem we know that the needs in our community are not limited to those who require a hot meal or a warm safe place to sleep. As we reach out in our community to those on the edge of homelessness, our outreach programs offer support, counseling, spiritual guidance and referral services, while presenting an invitation to know Christ.

Reaching Our Community – Reaching Out for Christ

The R.O.C. Outreach Center provides free clothing, furniture and other household items to families in need in our community. Our caring and compassionate staff and volunteers demonstrate Christ’s love in practical ways, providing individuals and families with clothing and household necessities. While sharing the hope that can be found in Christ, our staff and volunteers provide life skills counseling and referrals to local churches and other appropriate agencies.

Our goal is to help people see how a life knowing and following Jesus can give them the security and direction in their time of need.

We also partner with local churches during the holidays to provide special services and gifts to the needy of our community.
