Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission started as a soup kitchen in 1932, the years of the Great Depression. That seems appropriate for one of the favored charities of a friend of mine, Cyndie Dantzscher, Chef of Savoury Thymes Catering. By 1938, it was sheltering over 100 men a night. It now shelters men, women and children. It is a ministry-based program, providing Christian bible studies and faith-based recovery (substance abuse) programs, but in a compassionate context of whole-care service – legal aid, dental care, and more – to help people transition out of homelessness.
It has many gift-in-kind needs.
