Union Station Homeless Services has been awarded a $35,000 grant from the Bank of America Charitable Foundation. Funds from the grant will support Union Station’s mission of ending homelessness and rebuilding lives in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley.
“Union Station has been a critical resource for struggling families and the most vulnerable populations for many years, and Bank of America recognizes the role its staff and services play in helping individuals and families rebuild their lives and end homelessness,” said Kevin Trieber, senior vice president of Bank of America commercial business banking and board chair of Union Station Homeless Services.
In response to the pandemic, Union Station has taken a leading role in implementing Project Homekey — a region-wide effort to rapidly house hundreds of at-risk individuals and families in new, permanent supportive housing units. General operating support will bolster capacity to effectively execute this undertaking while simultaneously enhancing the organization’s overall infrastructure and facilities to address the long-term impacts of COVID-19.
Headquartered in Pasadena, Union Station has been in existence for almost 50 years. Union Station is the San Gabriel Valley’s largest social service agency assisting homeless and very low-income adults and families.
Bank of America has been partnering with Union Station since 2013 to address the needs of the most vulnerable in our communities.
Union Station provides services throughout the San Gabriel Valley — stretching from Pasadena to Pomona — the physically largest service planning area (SPA) in the county. Each year, Union Station serves more than 4,000 families and individuals in need. The organization serves children and adults — including seniors, veterans, immigrants, and domestic violence survivors — who are currently experiencing homelessness, have recently exited homelessness, or who are at imminent risk of homelessness.
