Welcome! Bienvenidos! Chào mừng!

Santa Maria Urban Ministry (SMUM) was founded as an outreach ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of El Camino Real in April 1983 to provide emergency food to the residents of San José’s inner city. In addition to continuing to serve the needs of our clients and promite their self-sufficiency, SMUM has developed transformative programs to serve the needs of and promote self-sufficiency within our community.

SMUM is a unique gathering place in our neighborhood where clients feel safe. At SMUM, clients can share their concerns with the staff and volunteers – caring individuals who know their stories, their struggles, their gifts, joys and hopes.

In spite of good efforts and solid programs, the need is growing faster than the resources. SMUM needs your support to accomplish its mission.
