We are OPEN during the COVID-19 Crisis . . . serving thousands of meals & providing safe shelter for homeless Memphians

As a Memphis “Essential Service”/Homeless Shelter, as listed in Mayor Strickland’s March 23rd,  2020 Civil Emergency Proclamation and Executive Order, the MISSION IS OPEN and serving thousands of meals and providing lodging to our City's homeless men, women, and families during the COVID-19 crisis. 

COVID-19 Prevention: The Mission is adhering to the recommendations of the Citygate Network’s Toolkit for Managing Impact of Aerosol Transmissible Diseases* for preparation for COVID-19, sanitation & hygiene, and coronavirus infection prevention.   We are taking these precautionary measures knowing that our homeless clients may suffer from a variety of chronic and acute conditions that may affect their immune system response.  If a client is identified during screenings as possibly having COVID-19, Mission staff will be following isolation protocols and be in communication with the Shelby County Health Department for the evaluation and care of our client.

Homeless and Hungry?   Please let us know…we can help.  Please call us at (901) 526-8403 or at  info@MemphisUnionMission.org.

Safety for Volunteers:  Following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the Mission is suspending volunteer activity at our facilities.   We deeply appreciate our volunteers and are vigilant in protecting your health & safety as well as the wellness of our homeless clients during the COVID-19 crisis

Please Pray for Us: May we please ask you to mention us in prayer asking God to protect our staff and clients from threats to our health and safety, and for Him to provide the resources to care for our homeless and hurting Memphians?    

Since 1945, and in the midst of our COVID-19 crisis, we have not ceased to provide food, shelter, and a path to recovery to some our neediest neighbors in Memphis.  How we thank God for you and your support & partnership!
