In a commanding show of support to children and teens housed at Union Rescue Mission’s (URM) community villages, Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC) congregants mobilized to give to those navigating a challenging life moment.

The years-long partnership and this specific outreach between the two storied non-profits have accelerated care, cheer and hope to families finding their way to independence and self-sufficiency.

For its part, Union Rescue Mission and their team of experts administer a compassionate, action-

oriented and faith inspired program for those serious about reorienting their life trajectories.

Their proven approach has reconnected families to society in meaningful, sustainable ways — and disrupted generational hopelessness for children affected.

“We are always looking for an opportunity to help others,” states CCC Pastor, Dr. Frederick K. Price. His wife, Lady Angel, adds, “URM provides a platform where we don’t have to recreate the wheel. We see this as a win-win.”

Hundreds of toys, clothing and other wish list items were donated to close the need gap and to bring holiday cheer. Recently, URM presented CCC with its Inspiration Angel Award on the occasion of the church’s 50th Anniversary Culmination Celebration and Remembrance Service. It is the highest honor awarded to partners aligned with their mission of helping people in L.A. overcome homelessness. Several of their carefully appointed village communities are situated in South Los Angeles, Compton, and other unincorporated areas, serving local residents.
