STORIES OF CHANGE
As a vetern in the U.S. Army, Peter struggled with a larger battle at home. Union Mission exists to help people like Peter retake control of their lives and leave homelessness behind. Thank you for sharing hope and help in our community.
Drugs. Disability. Domestic violence. Each is a cause of homelessness – all three together can lead to a life of hopelessness. Thanks to those who give generously to Union Mission, help was available when Stephanie was ready to choose change.
Rebuilding your life after years of drug addiction requires determination. When your decision to get clean leaves you and your children homeless, it can be hard to find hope for the future. But Donna, a single mother of two children, found the help and the hope she needed right here at Union Mission.
It isn’t always a long downfall to homelessness; sometimes it’s sudden. Your wife leaves, depression kicks in, a gambling problem develops, the bipolar disorder you were diagnosed with as a teenager becomes a problem again and when your car suddenly breaks down, you can’t afford to fix it. At least that’s the case with Jerry, a former antique shop owner and head of a recycling business from Frederick, Maryland.
