After spending three years of my post-undergraduate career working for the institution which, perhaps foolishly, granted me the title of Bachelor of Arts in Religion, I have decided to embark on a new endeavor. In less than two short weeks I will begin work with the Union Station Foundation of Pasadena, California as their Development Associate.
In an effort to ward off questions of what exactly the Union Station Foundation is and does, please read the description below borrowed from their website.
Union Station Foundation (USF), located in Pasadena, California, is the San Gabriel Valley’s largest private agency serving the poor and homeless. Union Station offers emergency and transitional housing for individuals and families, hot meals, job development, healthcare, case management services and substance abuse recovery support. Every year, we serve over 145,000 meals and provide 30,000 nights of shelter to our clients.
All of Union Station’s programs and services are free of charge and designed to help program participants find permanent solutions to homelessness. The work of Union Station is carried out by the efforts of a skilled professional staff, devoted community volunteers and generous supporters.
