Union Sataion is a place where people's dignity is kept and they help people with a high level of care , concern and also professionalism. The staff there are warm hearted human beings that if you are willing to help yourself , they will give you a helping hand. If not for them countless homeless people would be without meals , showers , beds, services such as medicial care all for free and given with human kindness. Thank god for union station and there should be much much more organizations like them. For more than 35 years they have helped the less fortunate of society...and are a role model for how people should be willing to help thier fellow man.
I am a proud alumni of the Union Station. I have been sober for going on 17 yrs. Still to date I have always been able to reach out to my family for assistance, my child volunteers during the summer. The Station has assisted with my childrens educational goals. Me and my children would not be the family we are today if it were not for the love, support and guidance we have received from my Union Station Family through out the years.
Review from Guidestar
I would like to take the time to acknowledge the wonderful, dedicated staff and volunteers at Union Staion Homeless Shelter. After experiencing what most people can only imagine, becoming homeless, instinctively I was very aprehensive on going to a shelter for assistance. I had heard a few "horror stories" or tales about other people's experiences with them. Fortunatley , I can not express enough how deeply pleased my family was upon being received at Union Station. The complete staff and volunteers are all warm and kind people. They truly want to assist individuals with not only dealing with becoming homeless, but also helping people build skills needed to regain a sense of self worth and confidence. The Sources staff assisted me directly with finding a job back in my field. They gave me great contacts and really took the time to work on my behalf. My experience here has been great and I would definatley recommend this assistance to any family in need. -- Thanks You Dearly, to all staff and volunteers !
I have used Sources job development program in 2004 and had great success! This year I have been working with my job developer, Rocio on updating my resume. We have had conversations in regards to a new carrer path that I am on. I just finished my mock interview and nailed it! I am looking forward to a job fair next week that Sources will provide transportation to. Mostly I am ready for that new job!
Helped with excellent resume, continued support after career development class, open door policy, lifetime career developer available, use of internet, phones, and media. Always have another place to call home. Thank you Union Station.
My name is David Compton. 13 years ago I lost my life, family, job, home, car - everthing. With the help of Union Station Homeless Services I have regained my life and self respect. Without their help I don't know where I would be today. I was helped with emergency shelter, food, clothing, counseling, finding a job Sources Career Development Program. I am presently employed with a career that I will one day be able to retire from. I can't thank them enough for all the time and effort they put into help saving a life.
