About Union Gospel Mission:
Founded in 1940, Union Gospel Mission (UGM) works in the areas of poverty, homelessness, and addiction. It provides a range of services through seven locations in Metro Vancouver and the city of Mission. Services include meals, shelter, outreach, alcohol and drug recovery, education and job preparation, affordable housing, and programs for children and families. In 2011, UGM opened a new six-storey facility in the Downtown Eastside to significantly increase its capacity. The new building has 72 shelter beds, 37 affordable housing units, extended meal capacity and a live-in drug and alcohol recovery program. In F2014, the charity served 321,681 meals and provided 28,483 shelter beds.
UGM controls the Union Gospel Housing Society, the Union Gospel (Heatley) Housing Society, and the Union Gospel Mission Foundation. The Union Gospel Housing Society and Union Gospel (Heatley) Housing Society each operate two social housing projects. The B.C. government partially funds three of the projects and fully funds one. Established in 2001, the Union Gospel Mission Foundation exists to raise, distribute, and administer funding and support for the Mission.
In F2011, UGM’s fundraising costs (including public education costs in F2014) were 24% of donations and administrative costs were 8% of total revenues. UGM’s funding reserves at the end of F2014 were ($5.5m) due to a mortgage payable of $11.8m.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by UGM. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
