The UHM Foundation supports programs with services along the housing continuum - from emergency and transitional housing programs to permanent supportive housing and affordable housing initiatives.
Why is this important?
At Union Home, we understand that while education, career readiness and financial literacy can help individuals and families reach financial security to obtain homeownership, other vulnerable populations with special circumstances need additional services to find home stability.
In fact, on any given night, over 500,000 individuals are homeless across the country. What’s more, homelessness is tied to all aspects of well-being – from general health to economic development to future prosperity.
What are we doing about it?
For this reason, The Union Home Mortgage Foundation also grants assistance to nonprofits providing services along the housing continuum. From emergency and transitional housing programs to permanent supportive housing and affordable housing initiatives, our nonprofit partners serve a variety of homeless populations (those suffering from mental health, chronic illness or disability, domestic violence, history of trauma, or even addiction recovery). Ultimately, through these programs, our hope is to ensure these individuals and families find supportive services to address the root causes that led to their homelessness, learn to combat them and plan for a successful transition to a permanent home. Or, in some cases, find a housing program that can provide residency while also offering the supportive services they need to thrive.
