Business Partners Get People Back to Work

Feb 15, 2018 4:33:35 PM

Work is a key ingredient of the process of ending homelessness one person, one family at a time. And while you’ll find current and former residents working throughout the Union Gospel Mission, we know only a handful of the people who come to us for help will get their permanent job at UGM.

So, we depend on more than 100 Business Partners to give our residents the chance to build their skills, confidence and work history to obtain and succeed in real-world employment. And while we firmly believe benefits of Business Partnership go both ways, we’re still extremely grateful to the businesses and organizations – and the supervisors and managers – who give people in recovery the chance they need to get back on their feet and hold a contributing role in society.
