Critical Year End Goal: $1 Million Needed by December 31

Dear URM partner,

I reached out to you with an absolute desperate plea in September; if we did not reach our budgeted revenue for July, August & September, we would have to cut back & no longer have Emergency cots on our 1st floor for up to 250 precious souls. We would also have to limit the number of families we could serve. I shared that our hearts wouldn’t let us do that, & your overwhelming unbelievably generous response allowed us to continue welcoming every single woman and family who has come to our door!!

Thank you!!

Instead of a desperate plea, I want to tell you all the good that we will accomplish together this month & next if we make our budgeted revenue for December, $1 Million by December 31st!!

We will be able to;

  • Put up and keep up a heated tent like structure to room for 200 women guests in our back parking lot, complete with 8 restrooms and 8 showers.
  • Add a wing for families on our 5th floor so we will be able to continue to welcome all families who come to our door.
  • Add 15 units of permanent supportive housing at URM’s Hope Gardens for families
  • Continue moving ahead with plans to break ground next spring & build a satellite emergency shelter for 81 families in Compton.

All of this while still continuing to shelter & serve over 850 women and children and 550 men 24/7/365.

This is a big mountain to climb and a lot to ask of you, our partners, but we cannot step back from this FEMA like/Red Cross like disaster.

Let’s continue together to be The Mission that steps up when others step back & steps up to the need even when it seems impossible.

Your co-worker,

Andy B
