What we aim to solve

The Heart of the Union Gospel Mission ministry is to glorify Jesus Christ through the evangelization and regeneration of the urban poor while worshipping with acts of mercy. To serve these needs, the Mission provides a Christ-centered environment, clothing, food, shelter, spiritual training, and a recovery program. This is our approach to the problem of poverty and homelessness in the Sacramento area.

Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

To introduce the homeless and families that are struggling to Jesus Christ and
give them hope in finding long-term solutions to their problems.
To help the poor in the most cost-effective way possible.
To keep our supporters informed about how their gifts are being used, and
what they are accomplishing.
To maintain community trust through accountability and good stewardship.

We are always looking to reach out for donations through; churches, individuals, other organizations, and grants.

We know there is a large community of the poor and broken with huge needs right in our midst. Over 106,000 people came through our doors for food alone. As our name reads, we are a Union of Christians, sharing the Gospel as a Mission for Christ. Our donor's individual support, donation drives, group events, all make an impact—volunteering, in-kind donations, financially, and prayers! Sacramento is seeing His light shining bright with every person who contributes! Isaiah 58:10, "If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness
shall be as the noonday."

We are quick to record and organize our statistics. We have seen so much growth from the past years, we can only hope for more!

We have just started our grants program with a college intern. She has created a program that will eventually become sustainable for the Mission if she does not return after her summer at the Mission. For now, our grant program is very small, but we would like to reach out to funding agencies for larger funds, so we can continue to do what we do- serving the homeless and reaching out towards the community.
