In 1997, UGM purchases the Goodyear building in downtown St. Paul to expand services to women and children.

With the successes of LifeNet and WorkNet, the Mission’s education programs come together in a home of their own. In the former Goodyear tire store in downtown St. Paul, Union Gospel Mission builds a state-of-the-art child development center and women’s education facility. Downstairs, children flourish in a space that focuses on their spiritual and developmental growth while moms are upstairs studying. Outfitted with new furniture and equipment, the center sends a message to participants that their success is well worth the investment.
