About this organization

Union Station Homeless Services recognizes the inherent value, dignity, and humanity of the people we serve. Together, we work to end homelessness through housing solutions, supportive services, and connection to the community.

Based in Pasadena, Union Station is the leading agency serving individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness, exiting homelessness or on the brink of homelessness across Northeast Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley (SPA 3). The four pillars of our work —outreach and intake, interim housing, permanent housing, and community integration – encompass a broad spectrum of services that provide those we serve with the targeted and comprehensive care they need. Union Station utilizes a Housing First approach in all we do and incorporates harm reduction and trauma-informed care, among other evidence-based practices, across all programs. We have grown to be one of the pre-eminent homeless services agencies in the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles County with an operating budget of $38 million and 300 staff members working to permanently house individuals and families.
