Shawn knows about life on the streets...
Committing himself to the brotherhood of the bike, Shawn was forced to do things he’s asked God to help him forget. Strike and retaliate. Cause pain and suffering. The pain he’s been forced to endure is unimaginable.
There was never enough booze to quiet the voices crying out in his memories. He felt rage. Such deep depression. More than anything, Shawn was lost in the depths of the darkness of his own soul.
But Shawn’s greatest pain was knowing his family didn’t want him around. Not even during the holidays. It broke him...
Be sure to watch Shawn’s beautiful story.
CHRISTMAS MATCHING CHALLENGE GIFT OPPORTUNITY
Deadline: December 31
We're seeing 23% more people than this time last year. The eruption of need has been unprecedented.
Christmas is the most difficult time of year for those who make Skid Row and the streets of Los Angeles County their home.
Many are afraid with the chaos around them. Some are on the very edge of giving up on the possibility of starting over.
Burned bridges. Bad decisions. So very far away from hope.
With the incredible challenge we’re facing comes an incredible opportunity this Christmas...
Through a $500,000 Matching Challenge Gift we’ve received, every gift you give will DOUBLE and go TWICE as far to provide TWICE the hope to people in need in our community this Christmas.
That means your support will go even further to share the message of the One who has the power to transform their souls, and ours. To share the greatest message ever told — "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord" (Luke 2:11).
But you have to give by December 31.
As one of the largest missions of its kind in America, Union Rescue Mission has offered help and hope to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in downtown Los Angeles since 1891.
“When I saw a news report on TV a couple of years ago about all the families experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles and at Union Rescue Mission, I knew I had to help. To me, no other organization in Los Angeles is doing as much to help these precious families get back on their feet. If family is as important to you as it is to me, please support this wonderful organization.”
“My visit to Union Rescue Mission was really eye-opening. The Mission does incredible work to help people get back on their feet and assist those in need. They should be very proud of all that they have accomplished and I’m honored to have been a tiny part of it.”
