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.
A residential transitional living and recovery program focused on helping broken men to build new lives. Grounded on a solid biblical foundation, the program addresses the root cause of homelessness and offers lasting solutions to men as they move out of addiction and despair and back in the community as productive members of society.

i came to the union rescue mission after losing my job and ran out of all my savings, i was a drinker and a casual drug user whom eventually became homeless, in 2003 i came to the mission for a meal and somewhere to sleep, and the next day i joined the C.L.D.P. program and graduated in 2005 and have been clean and sober ever since, a special thanks to Chaplin Steve Borja, D.H.
