Programs:   A study done by University of North Texas’ School of Public Health, as well as a  Star-Telegram news series, brought to light the desperate situation faced by the homeless in our community who are without access to rudimentary health care. Too many of them are women and children.

Union Gospel Mission’s Healing Shepherd Clinic opened in late 2008 to provide free primary medical and preventive services to the residents and guests of Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County. Following the model of Volunteers In Medicine, an international organization dedicated to providing health care for all people, Healing Shepherd Clinic relies on volunteer physicians, nurses, clerical and support staff. 

A specially liscensed Family Practice Nurse Practitioner provides accessible, compassionate care for the Mission’s men, women and children as well as oversees clinic operation. 

Healing Shepherd Clinic provides a needed service to both the homeless population and to the community at large by taking pressure off local emergency rooms which are currently the indigent person’s only option for care; as well as reducing the hospital’s financial burden.

Mission:

Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County is a local united Christian organization and ministry dedicated to providing love, hope, respect, and a new beginning to the homeless.  UGM-TC offers a holistic program of care that leads to true, lasting healing. All Mission services aim toward productive independence for each individual, regardless of race or religious beliefs.

I was not only a volunteer but also a former resident. The staff is great in front of volunteers but behind the scenes they berate and belittle the residents. I will never again do anything to help the organization. I have watched the kitchen staff (not chefs, there are no chefs there) serve food ... more »

I started volunteering at Union Gospel Mission in 1995 and have done so each week for all these years. It is my opportunity to give back to those that are unfortunate enough to find themselves without a home. I am the one to benefit from helping them, not the other way around. I pray each time I ... more »
