Women’s Auxiliary

With generous hearts and willing hands, we will actively and enthusiastically raise community awareness and funds to improve the lives of homeless families.

The UMOM Women’s Auxiliary was officially chartered October 2006. Since then, the Auxiliary has provided thousands of hours of volunteer service and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to enhance the lives of homeless children and families.

Membership is open to all women in the community. Members are encouraged to actively participate and support the programs of the Auxiliary.

Members receive:

  • A variety of volunteer opportunities to help those in need in our community
  • The opportunity to work with individuals who are dedicated to the service of others in a warm and friendly environment
  • Invitations to attend yearly fund-raising events
  • A yearly directory which includes membership, history and upcoming events
  • Bi-Annual newsletters

Activities and Events:

  • Gift wrapping during the holidays bringing joy to homeless families at a time when most needed
