WHAT UGM-TC MEANS TO ME

Victoria & Gus 

Victoria2 “UGM-TC was not what we expected in the best way possible!” Victoria and Gus had experienced homelessness before coming to UGM-TC. Their struggle with drugs and the law had cost them the custody of their first child and caused friction within their family. Now, with a strong support system, skill building and spiritual development, they have begun creating a stable life for their family. Looking back on the past, Victoria and Gus see how great a difference your support has made in her life and her family’s. “UGM-TC gave us our zest for life back. I feel like we can do anything. We feel unstoppable!” 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. For more information on our programs, please visit our services page.

 Judy

Judy has been volunteering at UGM-TC for two and a half years. She serves in the kitchen two days a week and takes on a variety of duties. As a little girl, Judy served at UGM-TC with her congregation. Later in life when she retired from a nursing career, Judy decided to use her free time in service at the Mission.

“When I started doing this, I wanted to make a difference in somebody’s life. This became secondary as these people have made a big difference in my life. UGM-TC is where I’m supposed to be. I truly think God called me to this.”

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.

Susan

Handshake and agreementI’m only able to help out occasionally with donations, but I’m so glad to hear that my little bit helps! The Lord is teaching me and my husband how to use our money wisely and we couldn’t think of a better place than UGM-TC. We are finding that the Lord is blessing us for it. Our income has not changed, but our attitudes have.” 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.

Karla

Karla is the Food Service DIMG_1902irector at UGM-TC. Karla’s husband unexpectedly passed away a few years ago leaving her fee alone and scared so she relocated to Texas to be near her family. She prayed for God to give her not only a job, but a challenge and purpose as well. “He gave me all that and more at UGM-TC. Everyday, in this job, I get to witness so much good around me. Through UGM-TC, God has given me a new life that my husband would be proud of. I can testify that God as a plan if you just put your faith in Him and trust Him.” 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. To see our current job openings please visit our jobs page.
