Review for Orlando Union Rescue Mission Inc., Orlando, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned about the mission more than 25 years ago. I was so impressed with the integrity and love the leaders had for the homeless that I have been donating ever since. I did want to volunteer as well but due to health issues I have, I can not. Besides donating to their "Bargain Box" store that serves both their clients and the community. I support them with a small monthly donation (I am certain that it is very well spent). Their clients get an opportunity to complete their education with includes tutoring. Adults also can enroll in skills related courses so they can find work. They offer resume assistance. Money management classes. They provide shelter for as long as it is needed to afford all the up front fees needed to rent and have $ if a crisis comes up. The children also get assistance if they need it. They work to ensure that no one who walks through their shelter will ever be homeless again. Additionally they just opened a bakery selling great products and training people in cooking skills. I can't say enough about them having also volunteered at another shelter that was not focused on the client to the same extent.
