The Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County believes every person is created in the image of God... ...with immeasurable beauty and worth; that people should not be defined by their present condition or past mistakes; that forgiveness is real and has the power to transform us. We are all broken. We need each other. No one can do it alone. We are meant to bear each other’s burdens. Healing for our brokenness begins with the heart, with connection, with understanding how much we are loved by a good God. With healing comes change, the potential for joy and meaning. We believe no one was created for mere survival on the streets, for an existence blurred by mind-numbing substances. We believe each person is created with a purpose, a unique gift no one else can offer the world. Our job is to help them rediscover it.
