THANK YOU DONORS, VOLUNTEERS, AND COMMUNITY

Thank you to everyone that helped make 2018 a success. Your generosity and community service has allowed Union Mission to partner with Savannah’s homeless to help them find housing and an improved quality of life. With your assistance, we were able to serve 286 people through our Emergency Services Program and continue to house 277 people in our Permanent Supportive Housing programs.

Because of you, the individuals and families we served during 2018 were able to come to Union Mission and receive a handup instead of a hand-out. Many of our clients found or maintained meaningful employment. This enabled 257 of the people we served to either find or maintain stable housing arrangements upon their departure from our programs. Union Mission also provided clinical mental health services to 132 homeless and low-income members of the community over the course of 1,550 individual sessions. These life changing services would not be possible without your support.

Again, thank you to our donors, volunteers, and the community for an incredibly productive 2018. We at Union Mission look forward to 2019 as we continue, together with the community, partnering with people to end their homelessness through housing and supportive services.
