Happy New Year - 2024!!! Can you believe that? We are starting a new year and
I’m excited to see what this year brings. Without a doubt, it will bring tons
of opportunities for us to impact the lives of people in need. There are so
many who are struggling with the bonds of addiction, mental health issues, or
some other life-controlling issue.
For us to adequately offer
them the help that is necessary, we, obviously, need resources. We need beds,
food, power, water, and all of the same things you need! The great thing about
our work, is that in 2023 we regularly housed and cared for 10-14 men and
served almost 1,500 meals in our community outreach program; on less than
$200,000.00! Imagine having that many people living in your house and the financial
resources it would take to care for them 24 hours a day?
The need in our community
continues to grow, can you imagine how much more we could do if our donations
increased? This is why we reach out and ask you and folks like you, to help us
continue to help those in need find hope for the future and freedom from their
past! As you continue to give to the Union Gospel Mission, we will continue to
create more success stories and we will continue "Meeting Needs, Making Change, and Magnifying Christ!"
Serving Christ and the
