Homelessness is devastating for kids. When little Sebastian’s mother struggled, he ended up in foster care. Before reuniting with his mom at Union Rescue Mission’s Hope Gardens Family Center, he started acting out at school. His anger grew and his grades suffered.
Thanks to friends like you, Sebastian is getting the medical attention and loving care he needs at Hope Gardens Family Center. Every child suffering in homelessness in Los Angeles deserves that kind of care.
Myra has overcome so much in her life . . . sexual abuse as a child, a 20-year drug addiction, and working to regain custody of her daughter. But then she learned she would be fighting for her very life — she was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
Thanks to friends like you, Myra is getting the care she needs at Union Rescue Mission. But so many other hurting souls are struggling to escape the streets of Skid Row and overcome homelessness, poverty, and addiction.
Maria is one of more than 1,300 men, women, and children experiencing homelessness that Union Rescue Mission is sheltering today. Thanks to you, we’re able to provide them emergency services like beds, meals, medical and dental care, legal aid, counseling, and much more.
But so many people like Maria on Skid Row and in Los Angeles are seeking our help today, we’re running out of space — and resources. It will take a miracle to meet the needs of everyone who needs our help. We have to find a way to keep our doors open. Please help.
