Welcome Pacific Garden Mission!

Welcome Pacific Garden Mission!

We’re privileged to announce our partnership with Pacific Garden Mission, the nation’s oldest continuously operating Gospel Rescue Mission, working to restore the lives of homeless and hurting men, women, and children and reach them with the Gospel of Jesus Christ since 1877.

In addition to emergency services of food and shelter, Pacific Garden Mission has expanded its offerings over the years, adding addiction recovery, discipleship, and ministries for mothers and children as well as a TV program and the award-winning radio drama, UNSHACKLED.

As we at Douglas Shaw & Associates begin serving Pacific Garden Mission, we’re thankful for the faithful supporters who have helped shaped PGM’s past these many years and everyone who offers their generous support to help guide their future.
