2017: Make It Count

“My house had burned down. … I felt like I couldn’t go on. I was just devastated.” – Enid


At the Union Gospel Mission, Enid found what she least expected: hope. “I couldn’t have imagined the healing that would take place here.”


310 people like Enid will sleep in one of UGM’s four shelters tonight. At $12.94 per guest, that’s $3,882.


310 people x $12.94 = $3,882 per day


UGM’s online goal for December is to fund 128 nights of shelter. Will you help?


$3,882 x 128 days = $496,896

Your generous, tax-deductible donation before December 31 will go to work immediately providing food, shelter and hope for people like Enid.

Thanks to a generous community, UGM is here to welcome the hungry and homeless, providing food, shelter, clothing, medical care, legal services and case management to more than 5,000 people every year.
