The Union Rescue Mission is the only shelter in Los Angeles that takes children of any age. We have a policy to never turn away a woman or child. As a result we are overcrowded given the epidemic that is sweeping Los Angeles of single mothers experiencing homelessness. To say our family emergency floor is overcrowded would be a gross understatement. Sometimes there are four families living in one room.
Deed and Truth is trying to express love and compassion to our traumatized families by bringing our beautification project to their area… remodeling the 4th floor lobby and the new community living space on the 5th floor!
