Food – We serve an average of 3,000 warm, nutritious meals each day — three times a day, every day of the year. To help meet the special needs of children, we provide infant formula and baby food, as well sack lunches to take to school.
Shelter – Each night, hundreds of men, women, and children find a warm bed and safety from the dangerous streets. We house an average of 924 men, women, and children each night, including about 62 families.
Clothing – Friends of URM graciously donate clothing for people experiencing homelessness. We distribute this clothing to men, women, and children who may have little more than the clothes on their back. Find out how you can donate clothing and other items.
Personal Hygiene – Restrooms, hot showers, and personal hygiene supplies are all available to our guests. We also offer diapers for mothers with children.
Clinics – URM has partnered with local universities who graciously donate their time and expertise to provide our guests with services, essential dental care, professional mental health services, and full-time legal aid counseling.
Day Center – URM is open every day to provide a safe place for hundreds of men, women, and children with nowhere else to go. We provide separate spaces for men and women with enclosed courtyards and spacious assembly areas that offer a safe, caring environment.
Family Community Center – This is a special place where mothers and children can get off the streets and enjoy one-on-one interaction or find a quiet space where a tired toddler can nap or a mother can rock a baby to sleep. We provide books, games, toys, puzzles, and crafts.
Hospitality Center – Scheduling a job interview, applying for aid, saving money, or enrolling a child in school are virtually impossible without an address or telephone number. The Hospitality Center helps guests make these important first steps by providing mail, telephone, and banking services.
Individual Assessment/Counseling – Counselors assess each individual guest to determine their unique circumstances and needs. We then offer them individualized assistance and referrals for employment, housing, government aid, substance abuse, recovery, and other services.
Life Management Classes – Trained staff and community volunteers address a variety of issues and critical needs. Classes include recovery from substance abuse, vocational guidance, parenting skills, nutrition education, and financial management.
Spiritual Encouragement – Daily chapel services, Bible studies, and discipleship programs offer the spiritual hope and healing that is essential to building new lives.
