THANK YOU DONORS, VOLUNTEERS, AND COMMUNITY
Thanks to our staff and community supporters for making the first half of the year such a success. Since January, Union Mission has provided emergency and transitional housing services to 174 men, 21 women and 37 children, and 204 people have remained in permanent supportive housing, free from the dangers of living on the street. UMI’s counseling center has also provided 522 clinical mental health sessions to 64 community members.
With the support of the business community, key individuals, government officials and volunteers, UMI raised more than $250,000 at this year’s Raising Hope– our most successful fundraising event to date. Our sponsors played an important role and we are proud to actively partner with them throughout the year to help those most in need. UMI was honored to recognize Don and Kaye Kole as two long- time supporters at this year’s Raising Hope. Their continued involvement has been instrumental in our organization’s efforts.
Again, thank you to our donors, volunteers and community members for allowing UMI to have such a positive impact in our local community. UMI is privileged to partner with people to end their homelessness through housing and supportive services.
