Extending appreciation to our key supporters and sponsors, providing an update from Union Mission on the impact of COVID-19, with special remarks from community leaders.
Union Mission will host a virtual 5th Annual Raising Hope Watch Party on Thursday, Aug. 27, 2020 at www.unionmission.org starting at 6 p.m.
The short pre-recorded 45 minute program will extend appreciation to key supporters and sponsors, provide an update from Union Mission on the impact of COVID-19, share information on affordable housing from the Keynote Speaker, Michelle Norris with National Church Residences, as well as special remarks from community leaders. This year’s Raising Hope is presented by Nine Line Apparel and Oliver Maner LLP, and will be emceed by Rabbi Robert Haas of Congregation Mickve Israel.
“Unfortunately, Raising Hope was postponed due to COVID-19. Union Mission lost its greatest source of funding that support Union Mission and specifically our Emergency Services Programs which include Grace House, Magdalene House and our mental health counseling,” said Union Mission Executive Director, Patricia Youngquist. “I cannot express appreciation enough for our 2020 Raising Hope sponsors who supported Union Mission during this very difficult and unprecedented time.”
“At Union Mission, we are always looking at innovative programs to end homelessness,” said Michael McCarthy, Chairman of the Union Mission Board of Directors. “It’s a complicated problem and there is no one perfect solution but small actions can affect the homeless in many different ways.”
