UGM-TC is excited to share the news of The Community Outreach Center – a 27,260 square foot facility opening in 2023. During the pandemic, the staff of Union Gospel Mission of Tarrant County focused our eyes upwards and listened to the needs of those that we serve. Many jobs that our residents qualify for offer sub-fair wages causing individuals and families to have to obtain multiple sources of income to meet their basic needs. In response to this struggle, we have developed L.A.U.N.C.H., Leading Advancement Uniting Neighborhoods and Communities through Hope, a trauma informed economic mobility program which utilizes a two generational approach. The Community Outreach Center will contain the UGM-TC Donation Warehouse. The Donation Warehouse assists 150 households annually with “Move-Out Packages” to set up their homes. Our Donation Warehouse and Distribution Center continues to be an essential positive solution for the community.
Our mission is to elevate individuals and families from poverty to economic well-being while through the provision of evidence based, trauma informed supportive services. UGM-TC collaborates with change makers to develop strategies to intentionally and purposefully stimulate the advancement of all individuals served and create a thriving community.
