About three hundred community members and civic leaders said “Bon Voyage!” to longtime Union Station Homeless Services CEO Rabbi Marvin Gross during a reception, dinner and program at Brookside¬†Golf and Country Club Wednesday evening.

Former Mayor Bill Bogaard and former City Manager Michael Beck attended, with so many others to show their appreciation for Gross’s 21 years of hard work leading Union Station¬†through an unprecedented period of growth.

Under his leadership, Union Station has grown from a single shelter on Raymond Ave into the San Gabriel Valley’s largest and most comprehensive social service agency, with nine programs currently in action and a 10th coming fall 2016.

Union Station announced this month that The Marv Gross Fund for Families has been established to celebrate Gross’s “incredible work. Contributions to the fund will honor Marv and enable Union Station Homeless Services to continue its support of the growing number of families experiencing or at risk of homelessness in Pasadena and the Greater San Gabriel Valley area.”

“My time at Union Station has been a remarkably rewarding and satisfying period on my professional life,” said Gross. “This is due, in great measure, to the outstanding, dedicated, talented and compassionate board members, volunteers and community leaders I’ve had the honor of working with along the way. Thank you all for being my partner in this journey.”
