We are Ted and Dee Burdine, Outreach Coordinators for Capital Christian Center, Sacramento, CA. Over 18 years we have partnered with the Union Gospel Mission to have outreach events we call Street Fairs; Christmas to the Streets in November and Rise and Shine in April or May. This wonderful organization has been a place of love for our volunteers and the men in the program that help us with our events. We have seen first hand, over the long haul, how love from the staff of the Union Gospel Mission has changed lives. It is always a joy to attend the graduation service of the men who have completed their program. The testimony of the Union Gospel Mission is the success of their graduates. The men who have made, and continue to make the choice to work, raise their children to be successful and volunteer and give back to their community. All of us have choices to make each day, choosing to live beyond ourselves and to put God and others first is not always easy, but very rewarding. The staff of the Union Gospel Mission in Sacramento, CA at 400 Bannon Street have that gift of love. They give it out every day, to so many people. Lives are changed, hearts renewed and this is what community change is all about. Thanks team for always being there for so many.
I have seen the Union Gospel Mission help men restart their lives. I have heard many testimonies of the men that have went through the rehabilitation program and graduated, whereby they have been reunited with their families, went back to work and attribute their new lives back to the program and the staff at the Union Gospel Mission. I have prayed with many of the homeless just before they go in for their nightly meal after our chapel service and seen the tears of gratitude for not only a place for them to rest, but also the food that is provided daily. I am also very grateful for the additional work that is done for women and the working poor. Our women's clothes closet and the food baskets provide the extra that is needed to help provide food for families and clean clothes for woman that are homeless or struggling financially. I am so thankful for the amazing staff at the mission that helps so many men and women.
I have met and heard the testimony of hundreds of the graduates of the Union Gospel Mission and through each and everyone of those, they share the difference the Mission has made in their lives. How the staff and the other men on the program have helped them get through a tough time and how their lives have been improved. There has never been a graduation ceremony that I have attended that I have not been moved to tears from the men that completed the Drug & Alcohol Rehabilitation Program after they shared their appreciation and stories. The staff reflects a tremendous amount of sincere helpful and loving attitudes and they all strive to help those struggling with addictions or homelessness. I am also thankful the Mission is able to also help women with their lives as well, through the Woman's Clothes Closet and the Bible Studies. Through the constant prayers and petitions to the Lord, the Mission is truly blessed.
We have been supporting Union Gospel Mission for several years since we took my son there for Recovery. He wasn't ready to be a part of this amazing program, but WE WERE! We are parents of an addict, have a prison ministry & do Christian counseling & teaching as God leads.
We have been through the Mission as well as collected food, clothing & personal items to donate. We know a leader in the Recovery program personally and are just so very impressed at the heart & soul of this much needed ministry!!! They have a wonderful balance of compassion & accountability. There are so many homeless & needy now on the streets and this mission is a haven of hope & help!! They are where the "rubber meets the road" ~ just as Jesus was! Union Gospel Mission deserves to be blessed as they bless so many!!!
UGM is very committed to serving homeless, preaching the gospel, helping turn lives around. Always responsive to my emails. Appreciative when we come to serve meals.
UGM had change my life back in 2009 in the program. I became Internal there and Got hired on and still with UGM as Evening Supervisor helping others like I been help. Showing how God save me and help me become better man for my family and friends. God bless you All my our Lord Jesus Christ keep you in his Love and Grace now and forever. Amen
They help with different services. I love the way they make you feel you are important no matter what the need is.
A loved one received assistance and guidance from this amazing place. I would recommend Union Gospel Mission to anyone in need.
Union Gospel Mission is the non-profit at the top of our "love to support" list!! We have personally known their staff & dedication to helping those in need for several years as client served, donor & professional in related field. Their tireless & unselfish work is unmatchable. UGM is totally responsible in their use of funds & items donated. They truly care about & love the brothers & sisters who come to them for help. We whole-heartedly support UGM & urge you to join us!!!!
The volunteers in the Womens Clothes Closet are amazing. Full of gentleness and guidance, knowledge and willingness to love on the gals who show up. They are also Prayer Warriors! Thank you to each one for enriching the lives of so many!
This mission house is doing more than any other nonprofit around. They have many options for helping homeless and needy, all in the name of Christ the Lord. Not many big shelters around give eternal spiritual hope for the needy souls
Great experience, first time serving at the church service. Good participation and accommodation to make sure everything would work with equipment, and audience attendance/participation was also really good. Look forward to serving the needy again!
The Union Gospel Mission consistently shares the love of God with everyone who walks through their door.
The cause provides loving, but effective aid to the homeless. The give and educate while exemplifying God's great love.
Love that this is not simply a \u2018give away\u2019 mission - ministry is
Amazing people, amazing mission - very proud to support!
I have been working in this field for 30 years and have not found a place that does all that UGM has done over the last 54 years.
The Union Gospel Mission is doing everything well. This organization is helping a tremendous amount of people while keeping God at the center of their mission to help. I think they could improve by advertising more, maybe. Other than that they are doing an excellent job.
It gives the homeless food & shelter along with an opportunity to enter a program where they learn how to live out the gospel daily & are given assistance finding a job. They need a women's program also.
We appreciate the generosity of the Union Gospel Mission. We benefit greatly from their generosity. Their Christian love shines through.
Union Gospel provides physical and emotional assistance to those in need. They offer a compassionate place for those who need relief.
They have a great public outreach in the public sector My donations appear to be utilized wisely by the director and staff of UGM. Good success stories from the people this mission serves
