Overview

The mission of UCC is “Building Dreams…Changing Lives”, by continuing the rich history of its centers in providing positive, productive
environments filled with educational, cultural, recreational, and social
opportunities to individual youth, their families, and the entire community, in a safe and supportive setting while maximazing their individual potential.

On an annually basis, 1500 at risk youth and their families take advantage of the age- appropriate, developmental programming offered by United Community Centers. The agency’s ultimate goal is to set the stage for positive academic,social, cultural and recreational skill-building opportunities in hopes that the youth retain those skills as they enter into adulthood. 

Many of the neighborhoods that the youth and families call home, have an overwhelming presence of negative influences such as illiteracy, poverty, substance abuse, low self-esteem, low neighborhood attachment and and high instances of population transition and mobility. The influences of these neighborhoods and the youth and families that reside within, are combated through UCC’s community based programming, which is designed to offset the negatives with positive alternatives, because oftentimes these negative influneces create an environment that is exceedingly difficult for youth to emerge from successfully. 

UCC is a resource located within the county's highest-risk communities that is committed to providing External Assets  of :
1) Support
2) Empowerment 
3) Boundaries and Expectations
 
UCC also assists  youth in developing Internal Assests of :

 2) Positive Values
 3) Social Competencies and
4) Postive Identity, as they develop into positive adults.
