Education breaks the cycle of homelessness

Alex had nothing when he came to URM, but today…

Fifteen years after arriving at Union Rescue Mission as a guest, Alex is still here… as our Manager of Development.  It took a lot of hard work and dedication for Alex to get where he is today, but he didn’t do it alone.

The Learning Center, available to all men and women in our programs, made all the difference in the world. “Once you get thinking again, your creativity opens up,” Alex says. “You feel really encouraged.”

Encouragement comes from our wonderful Learning Center staff and volunteers. They connect personally with each resident, providing Individual Learning Plans to help them meet their own unique educational goals.

As you know, we face an unprecedented number of people seeking refuge at URM. One of the most important ways to ensure that these precious men, women and children break the cycle of homelessness is through education.

Your online gift today will continue to provide important emergency care. It’s also an investment in the lives of men and women loved by God.

We’re proud to make the Learning Center available to our guests. With your generous support, all of our guests can continue to enjoy the same opportunities as Alex and find their calling in the community.
