For more than 60 years, Union Gospel Mission of Salem has been the community’s primary answer to restore the lives of men, women and children who are hurting, hungry and homeless. We partner with our community – churches, community leaders, families and individuals like you – to help homeless individuals by providing meals, shelter and programs that help people make lasting changes in their lives.
More Than a Meal
At UGM of Salem, a hot meal is just the beginning. Last year, over 8,300 hours of free classes were taught at our shelters’ computer labs. Our Learning Center Instructors and counselors lead courses in mathematics, writing, technology and GED prep. These classes opened the way for 116 clients to find stable employment in 2016!
The need for classes is growing, but our computers are struggling to do even the most basic tasks. How can we prepare guests for future careers if our computers are outdated and slow?
We Need Your Help
There are 2 ways you can help us raise $10,000 for further education for homeless guests:
1. Donate! For every $5 donation or more, you will receive a Macy’s savings pass (up to 25% discount).
2. Share! Click on the social media links above to share this opportunity with family and friends. The more people know, the better!
Together, we can fight against homelessness through the power of compassion and education!
