End Homelessness in Pasadena

history pic Union Station on Union Street 1973

Union Station Homeless Services is part of a premier group of human services agencies in Los Angeles County that are leading the way to ending homelessness in our community. We are the San Gabriel Valley’s largest social service agency assisting homeless and very low-income adults and families. Since 1973, Union Station has helped rebuild the lives of thousands of people who were once homeless and without hope.

The vision expressed four decades ago by the community volunteers who founded this agency still rings true today — every person deserves a life of dignity and a safe place to call home.

With over 45 years of experience, we proudly offer a full continuum of nine programs throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Our core services include outreach, bridge housing, permanent housing, and employment. In addition, we offer basic needs such as meals and showers, and well as care coordination, benefits enrollment, and referrals to medical and mental health services.

We know that housing ends homelessness. Over the years, we have learned some valuable lessons:


Union Station Homeless Services leads the delivery of homeless and housing services throughout the San Gabriel Valley. In collaboration with dozens of partner agencies and organizations in the region, we are working to help end homelessness.

Our field-based outreach teams locate and assess people who are experiencing homelessness throughout the San Gabriel Valley. They build trust and help people on their journey to finding safe and affordable housing.

We offer safe bridge-housing for adults and families. Our residents meet at least weekly with a care coordinator and aim to move into permanent housing within 90 days. Our residents have access to meals, supportive services, medical and mental healthcare, substance use recovery programs, career development classes, and enrichment activities to help them rebuild their lives. We also provide motel vouchers for adults and families as a short term solution.

In addition, a clear TB test and verification of homelessness are required prior to being interviewed for shelter.
