Since coming to UGM-TC, Jason has overcome a crippling addiction to drugs, found a place to live, returned to college and received several job offers. But his proudest accomplishment so far? “I got my children back. I have developed into a viable person and a viable father. Being a single father isn’t easy,” Jason admitted, “but with the programs that I’ve been through and the time allotted for me to collect myself, I’m more equipped and better able to handle it.”

Jason knows that his life is a gift from God through compassionate friends like you. “To the people that donate time, money and effort, it is well invested,” says Jason. “I am 100-percent proof of the effectiveness of it. UGM-TC is a caring, loving and spiritual place.”

UGM-TC offers programs designed for homeless individuals to maximize their potential by developing the skills they need to return to the community as independent, productive members.

What UGM-TC Means to LeanneLeanne has been volunteering at UGM-TC for 6 years. She serves in the kitchen and also helps lead a therapeutic dance class for our women residents. Leanne says, “UGM-TC is where I come to heal for various hurts that I may be dealing with in my own life. I am no different than anyone who lives here and my volunteer time reminds me of that. I have found true friends since volunteering at UGM-TC. Ultimately, I find God’s presence the most when I come to UGM-TC.”

You too can make a difference in the lives of our residents and guests by volunteering. Whatever your talents or interests, there’s a place for you if you are willing to serve!

For more information about offering your time and talents at UGM-TC, please call our volunteer office at 817-338-8402 or visit our volunteer page.


Handshake and agreementAlma not only donates monetarily, but she also donates her time and serves as a volunteer in our administrative offices. Alma says, “Over several years of being a donor and volunteer at UGM-TC, I have seen the total dedication and focus the staff has for meeting the needs of the homeless here in Fort Worth both physically and spiritually.”

Financial contributions and in kind gifts make a tremendous impact. Especially because UGM-TC is funded entirely by the generosity of individuals, churches and foundations. We do not accept any government subsidies.

Ron is a Facility Manager and has worked at UGM-TC for 7 and a half years. Ron is a retired US Coast Guard member of 20 years. He came to UGM-TC after retiring from his service to our country because he was called to by the Lord.  Ron says, “Working at UGM-TC is my calling, plain and simple. My job is extremely rewarding because I get to touch so many people’s lives and see them change right before my eyes.”

It takes a team of dedicated staff to keep UGM-TC up and running – providing love, hope, respect and new beginnings to the poor and homeless in our community every day. Employees play a unique and very important role in God’s plan for all those He brings to our doors.
