2019 Annual Report

 

294,316 meals were served
 at shelters, camps and Student Impact Center.

 

We’re all hungry. And God’s provided food for all of us. I’ve always found that if people are fed, they’re more receptive. If you’re hungry and you’re constantly hungry… your brain’s not working fully, you’re not motivated to work. I mean how can you work if you’re hungry?
- CLAI, UGM KITCHEN STAFF

112,513 nights of shelter,
 approx. 308 guests per night

I mean, a place to lay my head and sleep - that was huge for me. When I was out on the street, I never got a real full night’s sleep…
- MIKE, MEN’S RECOVERY PARTICIPANT

3,034 visits to medical, dental
 and vision clinics

 

I was sick and kept having asthma attacks and so, I asked, “is there any way I can be seen here? Can you see the kids too?” It went from being an emergency back down to just being sick... That’s the biggest thing - that we know that we are cared about and that makes a big difference...
- GWENDOLYN, MOM OF FOUR AND GUEST AT THE UGM CRISIS SHELTER

4,173 men, women and children
 were presented with the Gospel.
246 men and women
 found employment.

Bernie-circle

Life was intolerable. I was living for the moment, not caring what the repercussions of my actions were at all. I wanted to not feel... When I came here and I saw how kind-hearted people were, and that...they just wanted to help me, it renewed my faith in humanity. The program taught me to value community and friends, and mutual support is what gives you the ability to go on...

Legacy Gifts ensure UGM’s long-term stability
 and fund expansion projects.

 

This was the perfect thing because of the tax advantages, and - that if I gave a certain amount of money - a certain percentage of interest would be paid to me on a quarterly basis... I would get a deduction for a contribution to UGM which is what I wanted to do...It’s a win-win situation for everybody.
RON SCHOENBERGER, UGM LEGACY PARTNER, on why he chose to set up a Charitable Gift Annuity

As I look back over 2019, I’m amazed at the breadth and depth of our growing UGM family. Just think of all those individuals and groups; churches and businesses, volunteers and employees, donors and intercessors.

    In unity, we have rallied together to impact so many who have discovered that “hope starts here” at UGM. Our focus has become even sharper; to end homelessness in our community through the power of the Gospel. Though there have been many external accomplishments, like the purchase of properties for two new thrift stores, God’s greatest work occurs on the inside; his unique heart-changing work. Together we have an unshakeable confidence that with the Lord’s help and our collaboration, we will continue to rejoice with others in rekindled hope, redeemed lives, reunited families and fresh starts throughout 2020!
