Union Gospel Mission & Center of Hope

Interstate employees serving a hot meal at the Union Gospel Mission

The Union Gospel Mission was created in 1949 by a group of Dallas businessmen wanting to take care of the poor and homeless in the Dallas area. Throughout the years, the Mission served these people by providing food and clothing and conducting Bible studies and chapel services. Today, the Mission offers overnight shelter facilities for men, women and children and deploys buses to pick up the homeless, offering them an opportunity to acquire new clothing, take a hot shower, eat a hearty meal and attend chapel services—which are often conducted by Interstate’s Corporate Chaplain, Henry Rogers.

Interstate holds clothing drives throughout the year for the Mission and Center of Hope’s clothes closet, and on the first Thursday of each month, employees have the opportunity to serve a hot meal to homeless men at Union Gospel Mission.
