“After I lost my job, I was in a deep depression. I wasn’t being a dad to my boys. I was being a caretaker, feeding them, putting them on the bus, going through the motions. I was just lost. UGM-TC gave me the ability to be a dad again.” –Thomas, UGM-TC Graduate

I have a group of friends, and we can sit and discuss our lives, our feelings, if something is bothering us. I found a brotherhood here.” –Joe, UGM-TC Resident

When the Covid-19 crisis reached Fort Worth, we kept our doors open and continued to serve the most vulnerable in our community. Just as we have done for over 130 years. However, quick changes being implemented for the safety of our residents and staff came with a high cost.

We quickly had to purchase items such as masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, new technology equipment and so much more. Today we have a goal to raise $80,000 to offset the unanticipated expenses in 2020. When you give to UGM-TC this #NTxGivingDay you are providing food, shelter and care for our homeless neighbors. Thank you!

Did you know that in Tarrant County the top reasons for homelessness are
1. Unemployment
2. Inability to pay rent
3. Substance abuse
4. Domestic violence.

No two situations are the same, which is why we offer individualized care to every individual or family. But we need your help to do it. This #NTxGivingDay we are raising money to cover the unanticipated costs as a result from this crisis.

When the Covid-19 crisis began, we made an important decision to keep our doors open and continue to serve the most vulnerable in our community. Just as we have done for over 130 years. Since then, we have endured many unexpected costs to keep our staff and residents safe. Things such as increased cleaning supplies, PPE, signage, thermometers, audio/video streaming equipment and more.

This #NTxGivingDay our goal is to raise $80,000 to cover the unexpected costs in 2020 that arose as a direct result of Covid-19. Make a difference when share this post and schedule your gift today: https://bit.ly/2Geqn3X

While others were able to temporarily close earlier this year, we kept the doors open and continued to serve on the front lines as we have done for over 130 years. We have been adapting and making changes quickly for the safety of our residents and staff. But these changes came with a cost.

We quickly had to jump to action and purchase PPE, plexiglass dividers, hand sanitizing stations, professional disinfecting equipment, new technical equipment to stream chapel services throughout our campus and more. This #NTxGivingDay we have a goal to raise $80,000 to cover the unforeseen expenses due to Covid-19. When you schedule your gift today, you are providing the basic to the most vulnerable in our community. Thank you.
