Mission Statement

Urban Connection is a homeless organization with a 3 fold mission to:

1. LOVE the lost and forgotten people of Skid Row by connecting with them through outreach and providing for their physical and spiritual needs.

2. EQUIP them by connecting them with the training needed to become productive members of society

3. SEND OUT into the world as productive member of society

Description

We connect homeless via our daily community outreach. Through our Guest Counseling service, we sit with homeless guests in a one-on-one, personal setting to uncover their needs and goals so that we can connect them with local providers and resources. We connect them to services that help with their immediate needs, things like dental and clothing, to more long-term needs meant to get back them onto their feet in permanent ways, such as recovery, housing or employment programs.
