JOIN THE WALK TO FIGHT HOMELESSNESS, SATURDAY MAY 11, 2019!

Join CEO Andy Bales and Union Rescue Mission as we host our 2nd annual 5k Walk to Fight Homelessness in Los Angeles.

Homelessness is devastating communities nationwide, but nowhere more than in Los Angeles. We now have more than 52,000 men, women, and children living on Skid Row and throughout Los Angeles County each day.

For more than 127 years, Union Rescue Mission has provided safe shelter, meals, long-term rehabilitation programs, education, counseling, medical services, and encouragement to help our neighbors escape homelessness forever. But with the skyrocketing increase in women and children on the streets, we need your help!

This is your opportunity to turn your compassion into action. We would like to invite you to join us for our 2nd annual 5k Walk to Fight Homelessness. Registration is free and proceeds from the walk will go toward the continuation of our life-saving programs and services to help those experiencing homelessness find their way home.
