After Angela and her four children were evicted from their apartment, they were reduced to sleeping in the metro station. An officer noticed and referred them to Union Rescue Mission.
LETTER FROM REV ANDY BALES, CEO UNION RESCUE MISSION
In Los Angeles, women and children make up 40% of all people experiencing homelessness. This is unacceptable.
Angela’s story is representative of the 215 single mothers and children who currently reside at Hope Gardens. URM also provides emergency shelter to an additional 280 parents and children at our Skid Row location, totaling in over 500 family members in need, each with their own story of pain and perseverance.
We are currently the leading provider of emergency shelter for families experiencing homelessness in the county. We never turn away a woman or child.
This is why your continued support is so important. Together we can continue to restore lives, one family at a time.
Listen to Angela’s transformative tale of hope now (above).
Rev. Andy Bales, CEO
