Of Scrap and Steel from the roof of the URM

On Thursday, I saw the city skyline from a different perspective- from the rooftop of the Union Rescue Mission in skid row.  The URM, along with LAVA (Los Angeles Visionaries Association) hosted a screening of the 1949 film, Of Scrap & Steel.  The film was produced by the Union Rescue Mission, started Porter Hall and told the story of one man’s struggle and how he found redemption through the help of the URM.

Rev. Andy Bales welcomed us and spoke before the film.  Also in attendance were Richard Schave and Nathan Marsak who gave us insight on the neighborhood’s history.  Boxed dinners, “Meals with a purpose”, were provided at a low price and proceeds went the URM to feed others.

If you’d like to learn more about the URM, or find out how you can help, their website is: http://www.urm.org
