About UCAP

Poverty continues to have a profound impact on the lives of American families.

The number of hungry and homeless people is rapidly growing as a result of job layoffs, lack of affordable housing, home foreclosures, lack of government (Federal, state and local) funding, and the persistent rise in food and gas prices (including oil to heat homes).  This unfortunate trend has increased the demand for services from organizations like UCAP.
