Business and Community Groups

The Urban Mission invites your business or community group to join us in making a difference in our community – one life at a time.

Here are some opportunities to get involved:

  • Volunteerism =  The Urban Mission cannot operate without the help of volunteers.  As the demand increases each year, so does our need for volunteers.  Serving a meal at our Unity Kitchen or helping to distribute food are popular among our volunteers.
  • Matching Gifts =  Many generous individuals give their contributions from their own pockets but are often unaware that their companies will match their gift at least one-for-one. Talk to your Human Resources Department to find out more and make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to make your gift go twice as far.
  • Grants = Whether your giving focus is on children, housing, crisis care, access to food, technology, or education, we have a need and place for your support.
  • Toy Collections = There are a variety of ways you can lead a collection that rallies your whole team for a meaningful cause.  Your team’s collection will ensure that children who may not otherwise receive gifts during the holidays are able to experience the excitement of receiving a new toy.
  • Adopt-a-Family = Hundreds of families and individuals that participate in our programs or live in one of our three residences have the opportunity to be adopted during the holidays. $50 per person gives these families and individuals the chance to fully celebrate the holiday season.
  • In-Kind Contributions = Every corporation has the ability to increase its impact by donating product or expertise. Check back with us periodically to see the current list of our most needed items.
