A website helped this nonprofit shelter tell its complex story
Presbyterian Night Shelter
A major motion picture company was set to release a film based on the 2006 book Same Kind of Different As Me, about the friendship forged between an international art dealer and a homeless client at Union Gospel Mission in Fort Worth, Texas. Leveraging the opportunity to reach people who weren’t familiar with UGM-TC – and ultimately to further their mission of ending homelessness – UGM-TC invited Djimon Hounsou and Greg Kinnear, two of the lead actors in the movie, to speak at the annual Winter Fundraiser. They asked Balcom to handle the promotion.
