Union Rescue Mission

San Pedro and 5th 

Originally located at 2nd and Main next to St.Vibiana's Cathedral, this facility had served the homeless for several decades. In 1994, it was moved closer to the "heart" of Skid Row. At over 250,000 square feet, it is the largest private shelter in the nation, housing over 1,000 souls a night.
