Hope Gardens Family Center, a ministry of Union Rescue Mission, is a transitional housing and residential facility in Sylmar, California that provides a safe environment, free of crime and full of hope so that moms and their children can get a fresh start. Through our comprehensive program, moms are able to transition from homelessness to independent living in 12-36 months. In addition to the family program, Hope Garden’s Sequoia Lodge supports up to 23 formerly homeless elderly women with permanent supportive housing.
