In a ceremony in Sacramento, Assemblymember Chris Holden recognized Union Station Homeless Services, a non-profit that has served the Pasadena and greater San Gabriel Valley community since 1973, as “Non-Profit of the Year” for the 41st Assembly District.
“I am very pleased to recognize Union Station Homeless Services for the outstanding and commendable service provided by their staff and volunteers.” said Assemblymember Holden. “These committed individuals have taken it upon themselves to combat the growing dangers and realities of poverty, and I commend them for the work that they do for our community.”
Dana Bean and Alan Maltun accepted the award on behalf of Union Station Homeless Services during the inaugural California Non-Profit day ceremony hosted by the California Association of Non-Profits.
With over 40 years of experience, Union Station Homeless Services offers a full continuum of nine programs throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Their services include street outreach, intake/assessment, care coordination and navigation, meals, shelter, housing, employment development, benefits enrollment, and referrals to medical and mental health services.
With their participation in new countywide programs such as the Coordinated Entry System and Homeless Families Solutions System, Union Station has expanded their intake services from Pasadena to the entire San Gabriel Valley. These new programs help them identify and rapidly house the most vulnerable members of the community.
