You + Union Rescue Mission: 

HOPE for Los Angeles

Together with you, we are embracing those devastated by homelessness with the compassion of Christ.

Ending homelessness isn't easy. It will take all of us—as well as courage, passion, and strategy in motion.

Your giving tranforms lives

What does the face of homelessness look like?

It might not be the face you imagine. It’s a mom struggling to feed her kids. A man who lost his job. It affects mothers. Fathers. Sons. Daughters. Brothers. Sisters.

It could be you or me. It’s up to us all to help end the tragedy of homelessness.

When you give to support our mission, you help provide meals, shelter, and life-changing services for the men, women, children, and families experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles.

Your support helps end homelessness in Los Angeles as we know it.

Every gift counts in showing someone devastated by homelessness that the past doesn’t have to define them any longer. A new beginning can be theirs in Jesus Christ, thanks to people like YOU!

“I was so alone. I finally realized that life wasn’t the problem, I was. I had to learn that instead of running away from myself, I had to run to God.”


“I want to tell donors that their support means everything to me. I know what it’s like to be loved, and I know what it’s like to have a future. That’s what you did for me. Thank you!”


“I enjoy my work as a CPA, but what I really wanted to do was be out making a difference in someone's life. The minute I set foot on the Hope Gardens grounds, I knew this is where God wanted me to serve.”

“Both my parents were addicts. There was no love in our home, only violence. As an adult, I spent 9 years homeless in a riverbed. When I finally walked through these doors [at Union Rescue Mission], I was broken. Then I met Jesus. I gave my life to Him. Now He's transforming me in ways I never thought possible.”


Make miracles happen

When you support Union Rescue Mission, you reach people devastated by homelessness, chained by addictions, facing hunger, navigating pandemic fears, or asking for help for the first time ever. The power of your partnership comes in meeting immediate needs, sharing the hope of Jesus Christ, and providing tools essential for life-change!

Together, let's reach people on Skid Row and throughout Los Angeles. Let's instigate everyday miracles!

"The pandemic ushered in the most difficult and challenging time in Union Rescue Mission’s history. We have a long ways to go, yet I refuse to give up hope. We serve a faithful God bigger than our desperation and challenges—a God who uses the compassion and generosity of people like you to bring light and life into our dark world. Thank you for standing with us as we seek to serve the most vulnerable among us. Together, I know we’ll get through this."
