First off all the management at the mission earn 6 figure salaries and the CEO Andrew Bales earns a seven figure salary. They also claim to be a mission with Christian values however they are actually interfaith. They have people from all religions holding services at the mission and pretend to lean to what faiths wallet is in the door.
One of their closest allies Kevin Haah is the president of the Interfaith Clergy Council (Source
The executives own private planes, luxury cars, mansions and even boats. If you don't believe me here is the million dollar mansion their CEO lives in in one of Pasadena's most pricey neighborhoods in the link. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=724+N+Marengo+Ave,+Pasadena,+CA&ie=UTF-8&ei=k4ApUeOgI-axigLvtYGwBw&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAg The home has been appraised as high as $2.3 million. The missions management team attended a conference ran by Child Fund and Creflo Dollar on how to get people to first give you money and then spend as little on the ministry as legally possible and maintain tax exempt status. As I recall the number was 27% which Union Rescue has set as a goal to create even more funds available to pay themselves. One mission employee told me its against their interest to end homelessness because without "bums" on the streets people would not give them money.
This organization is a kin to the sleazy TV evangelist if not worst. They will say and do anything to get your money. Then they will say something totally different to another for the same reason. They are nothing but a scam using to the poor to get rich.
