Pasadena, CA – Union Station Homeless Services has received a $100,000 donation from Henry DeNero of Home Space.
DeNero served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Homespace, a provider of Internet real estate and home services, from January 1999 until many of its assets were acquired by LendingTree, Inc. in August 2000. The gift to Union Station Homeless Services results from the sale of the company’s remaining assets.
This very generous gift will help Union Station Homeless Services continue to provide housing, employment and life skills programs to people experiencing homelessness in the San Gabriel Valley.
“Giving this gift is an easy choice,” says Denero. “Union Station has a long history of success, and I know this gift will be used effectively.”
Committed to helping homeless men, women and children rebuild their lives, Union Station Homeless Services is part of a premier group of human services agencies in Los Angeles County that are leading the way to ending homelessness in our community.
“This is just amazing! We are very grateful,” said Marv Gross, CEO of Union Station Homeless Services. “This gift comes at an exciting time of growth as we expand our efforts to serve more people than ever before.”
Union Station Homeless Services is the San Gabriel Valley’s largest homeless services agency. Since 1973, Union Station has helped rebuild the lives of thousands of people who were once homeless and without hope. The agency provides a full continuum of eight programs in seven locations, and services include street outreach, meals, shelter, care coordination, housing, and employment development.
