Urban Experience

"For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink . . . I tell you the truth, to the extent that you did it to one of these, even the least of them, you did it to Me." -- Mathew 25:35-40

Urban Experience (UX) is a 2-5 day service experience in the heart of Skid Row. You’ll stay at the Union Rescue Mission on our rooftop, serving men, women and children experiencing homelessness and getting an inside look at one of the largest rescue missions in the country. It’s an experience you won’t forget!
Serve. UX volunteers have prepped and served meals, worked on Mission cleaning and painting projects, and assisted in administrative offices.
Learn. While you’re working, you’ll meet men and women with great urban ministry experience, many of whom have graduated or currently in a URM program.
Reflect. Your schedule will include group time to talk about all that you’re learning and experiencing.

We provide an itinerary framework but encourage groups to come prepared to personalize the experience. Stay includes meals. We can accommodate up to 15 volunteers per group.  Please contact us for availability and more information.
