Mission

We embrace people experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Christ, giving hope and healing for a changed life, helping them to find their way home. Union Rescue Mission is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to restoring the lives of the homeless and poor in Los Angeles by seeking to empower them to break the cycle of poverty and become self-sufficient. Union Rescue Mission is one of the oldest and largest missions of its kind in the United States and the oldest in Los Angeles. Nutritious meals, hot showers, warm beds, clothing, shoes, haircuts, a safe place, and a listening ear are a few of the things URM offers men, women and children everyday. Our first priority is to meet basic needs, and then to assist in finding ways for one to get back on their feet. Most services are free of charge.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
