'Evening of Hope' sheds light on homelessness & addiction in Yakima

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA,WA- Yakima's Union Gospel Mission kicks off their annual Evening of Hope event with homelessness and addiction in the spotlight. The event helps get the community together to fundraise and help Yakima's Union Gospel Mission get people off the street and back into normal life. Many people in the community get the opportunity to interact not only with staff members but with those who share their story on recovery. Without the event many things UGM offers wouldn't be available to the Yakima community, like the Medical Care Center or their Family Shelters.

UGM's Care Center is a low cost dental and free medical program offered to those in need in Yakima. Their medical clinic is one of the largest free clinics in Washington state. Just last year the clinic had over 14,000 patient visits. Union Gospel Mission is also able to provide temporary family shelters. They provide a safe shelter for the entire family while helping them work through whatever issues they may be facing. 

For more information on how to get tickets to the Evening of Hope call Cindy Hilyard, 509-853-4317 or for more information on all their resources head over to https://www.yugm.org/
