How We Help

At UGM, we believe in meeting people wherever they’re at, and helping restore lives by providing for their whole needs. Whether that’s through a nourishing meal and safe shelter, or addiction recovery and supportive housing, our compassionate continuum of care is designed to bring deep healing, and build bright futures.

The Need in Metro Vancouver and Victoria

The need for help is greater than ever. The overlapping opioid, housing, and health crises are pushing people into poverty every day, and homelessness and addiction in Metro Vancouver is at an all-time high.
