I guess you could say we take giving thanks pretty seriously here at Union Rescue Mission. Our guests are thankful to be off the street and to have a safe place to sleep at night. The men and women enrolled in one of our life transformation programs are thankful for the opportunity to rebuild their lives with the help of loving case managers and chaplains dedicated to helping them succeed. Our growing population of families who are experiencing homelessness for the first time are thankful that we have stepped up to meet the needs of whole families and single dads with kids. Last but not least, our staff and team of dedicated volunteers are eternally grateful for the sacrificial giving of our donors that allows us to do all that we do.
Needless to say, we take Thanksgiving pretty seriously too! Our Thanksgiving celebration is a time for us reach out to the community we serve and shower them with love, attention and of course great food. And for many of the guests who attend our special celebration, it’s the first step in their journey toward home.
