Not every man who comes through the Men’s Shelter’s “east door” (guest services) is in the same place. Part of the grace-based philosophy that permeates UGM is dealing with each person as an individual. During an initial evaluation process, staff members help the men who come to us identify their short-term needs and long-term plans. Some simply need a few nights lodging in a safe, sober environment. Many more need help getting back on their feet, and the Mission has a variety of ways to do that.

EMERGENCY SHELTER

Emergency Shelter Guests typically stay for less than three months while they receive assistance during a time of crisis. If they have specific physical or mental challenges, our staff works to connect them with the appropriate resources.

Employment Ready Program

Re-joining the work force is a critical factor in breaking the cycle of homelessness. The Employment Ready Program was created to help men overcome the obstacles to finding and keeping a job. Through case management, individual problem areas are identified and a plan of action is created. Issues are addressed and confidence built through classes, work experience and a supportive community. The computer lab and coaching are available for resume creation, interview preparation and job search. (Men who are dealing with addiction as a major obstacle to employment are encouraged to join LIFE Recovery – an entirely separate program.)

Recovery & Restoration

Men who recognize within themselves a need for life transformation and are willing to make a commitment of 18 to 24 months may join Men’s LIFE Recovery.

2015 STATS
