We interviewed Jason Quintrell, CEO of the Union Mission.
He discussed the diversity of their programs, not just their Feeding Families program.
Since 1911, Union Mission has been a ready, active hand of help to the needy of West Virginia. Their mission is “helping hurting people in Jesus’ name,” and as such, they unabashedly share the gospel of Jesus Christ even as we minister to the physical needs of the downtrodden. They have seen God work in amazing ways through the various ministries they provide.

- Union Mission Men’s Shelter
