Union Rescue Mission needs your help! We’re competing to win a $100,000 grant from LA2050! Visit their site and vote for Union Rescue Mission today!
At Union Rescue Mission, we believe that jobs are the first step to financial stability for those experiencing homelessness on the streets of Los Angeles. Our Jobs Program helps the men and women we serve do just that – find good, living wage jobs. With this $100,000 grant we can expand our current program and double the number of men and women securing employment (currently at 75) to 150 during 2016.
Our friends at GIVE are also competing for a grant! Please also vote for them.
In a context of land and water shortage and of fresh food access issue in underserved areas, Green Institute for village Empowerment (GIVE) program is to install sustainable garden towers, serving communities in need. GIVE will also train job-ready, former Skidrow residents of Union Rescue Missions’ Job Development Program and Little Tokyo residents in the maintenance of the tower gardens and in growing profitable herbs and vegetables.
Urban Farm is not just cultivating food but Community!
