Description: 

Pamphlet describing the history and purpose of City Union Mission after 15 years of service. The Mission asserts its mission to shelter and feed people in need, and writes that "to help a man without belittling him ... this takes the art of social service plus the heart of Christian love." The booklet pictures the Mission's Opportunity Farm, and states a need for a chapel, larger dining hall, additional cabins, and more livestock, and describes other ways contributions support their efforts, including facilities for aged men, spiritual support for women and families, and playgrounds for children.
