Galveston Urban Ministries (GUM) is an urban development work in the community north of Broadway in the city of Galveston. It is a neighborhood with high poverty rates and low levels of opportunity.
The mission of Galveston Urban Ministries is to “develop holistic relationships to transform the community we love. Whether we’re teaching kids how to read, helping our adult neighbors prepare to enter the work force, or educating work groups from all over Texas on how to alleviate poverty, our goal is to see the North Broadway community thrive! We want each of our neighbors to be have healthy families, good paying jobs, and above else know the abundant love of Jesus!”
Grace Anglican Community is teaming with GUM to make a difference for people in that underdeveloped part of town. For years, we have sent groups there to invest sweat equity to transform old, run down structures into safe, attractive usable spaces. Working together, change can happen.
