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.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Drug & Alochol Rehabilitation Program

At UGM, we seek to help those troubled with addictions and alcoholism, to not only rehabilitate themselves physically, but to transform themselves spiritually. Many approaches to controlling these problems emphasize control. Too often, people become “dry drunks,” waiting to use again when life’s pressures become too much.

We believe that God offers transformation, the ability to truly change and no longer be held hostage by the chains of addiction. Our therapy involves physical, mental and spiritual support that helps men find a real, lasting answer to their problems, and a support community to help them restart their lives that involves over 31 churches in the Sacramento area.

Population(s) Served
People who abuse drugs, alcohol, or other substances

Bible study for women is every Thursday at 9:30am. Afterwards, they get food and have access to a variety of essential items such as clothing, purses, shoes, and sundries to assist them with their daily needs, help them prepare for work; even clothing, formula, and diapers for their children.

Population(s) Served
Females
Children and youth (0-19 years)

Every evening we have a different volunteer church group conduct a chapel service for our guests before they have dinner. Our guests look forward to chapel because they get to hear the Word of God and realize there is a hope. After chapel, our guests are directed to the dining hall where
they are served a hot, well-balanced and nutritious meal by a volunteer church group.

Population(s) Served
Homeless people

Twice weekly, and on holidays, we distribute food boxes to low-income families to help in emergency circumstances. Depending on each family’s situation, they are given a food basket from our pantry. We provide more than enough food to meet the needs of the family unit during their crisis.

Population(s) Served
Aging, elderly, senior citizens
Economically disadvantaged, low-income, and poor people

The Mission is able to lodge 60+ homeless men nightly. We allow each man shelter for seven consecutive days and three days off to provide a chance for other unfortunate men. Free showers, clean clothes and toiletries are available to homeless men on a daily basis, including mail service.

Where we work

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

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